Active Directory Multiple sites without multiple DC's
Posted on 2004-09-09
We are rolling out a new network to another group within our company set up 2003 DC and exchange all ok but they have multiple sites split by routers.
Site 1 Main Office
Site 2 Sub Office
Site 3 Warehouse
The sub office and the warehouse have different IP ranges than the main office and connect through routers with a set default gateway pointing them to the main office. My original plan was to put in normal DHCP scopes etc but this will not cover the multiple IP ranges or the different set default gateways - I see that putting a DC in each site and setting up extra sites would do this but it does not really look worth it for the number of people in the different sites. Also we want to keep the IP ranges per site the same as they are currectly configures (so a re-config of the routers is a no no) any other ideas would e appreciated...
