Hi guys
i need ur advice on a couple of issues. i have a LAN spread across 3 locations and connected by a 10Mbps microwave link. i want to implement windows server 2003 network across the 3 locations. i also would like to have 3 servers in a cluster but distributed across the 3 locations, one in each location.
My question is
1. is this possible
2. Can i subnet the LAN in above scenario
3. would AD sites and Services also work or work as an alternative to subnetting?

thanks in anticipation

I don't know then. Whenever I've seen clusters the servers within the cluster have all been situated right next to each other.

But to answer your other questions:

i want to implement windows server 2003 network across the 3 locations, is this possible?
yes.

Can i subnet the LAN in above scenario?
yes.

would AD sites and Services also work or work as an alternative to subnetting?
yes, although usually differant sites within a domain are on differant subnets.
