Hi

I am upgrading NT4 domain to Windows 2003 - which is consist of multiple
remote office with some of them having BDC and connecting to headoffice with T1 (1.5 MB) link.

Is there a rule which helps me to decide when to create an Active directory site & place the local domain controller in remote office ?

Is there any document available which guides me about how to creat a Site, Subnet & deploying a DC in remote office ?

Thanks
Faheem

Each physically seperate office should be it's own site within your domain.

Ideally, you would have a DC in each location.
