We have a very critical problem to solve here...
We have a windows2003 active directory infrastructure and by design (to reduce costs) we have several small sites running without a local DC/GC on site. The users authenticate over the WAN link to the closest DC/GC.
This design works well when everything is up and running (meaning the network link between the users and the closest DC/GC).
Unfortunately, when the network link to the DC/GC is down and the small site users without a local DC/GC on site are isolated, they cannot continue their job. They cannot access any local site resources.
I was wondering if you knew any kind of solution or workaround to solve this behaviour?
