Windows 2000 Active Directory Domain on a WAN
Posted on 2002-07-15
I have a customer with the following setup
a. Sydney: 192.168.2.xxx domain GNSSYDNEY NT 3.51
b. Brisbane: 192.168.7.xxx domain GNSBRISB NT 3.51
c. Melbourne: 192.168.3.xxx domain GNSMELBOURNE NT 3.51
The servers are independent domains with trust relationships. There is a 64kbit Frame Relay network between the locations.
We are moving all the systems to a Window 2000 system. We have established the domains
groupnews.com.au in Sydney, melbourne.groupnews.com.au in Melbourne and brisbane.groupnews.com.au in Brisbane. We want the credentials of the users replicated in each state so that a user in Sydney can login in Brisbane using Terminal Services using there Sydney users rather than having to replicate the users in each state.
How do we establish the replication between the domains? The link is slow so the replication should occur at night if possible or on demand.
