Hurricane Hot site with domain controller, exchange server, and citrix server. 500 points
Posted on 2006-04-17
I need a few things answered, but I will start with this one.
We are a hospital in New Orleans that will have a hot site located in Opelpousas, La. This will be mainly for email, file replication and payroll. I currently have 3 domain controllers here in New Orleans and will be building a new one for the hotsite. Only one domain controller here in New Orleans holds the FSMO roles. My question is:
If the the hotside is in full production and the site to site link (T1) fails (as during a hurricane), will the hotsite still operate normally without the FSMO roles? What else should I be looking for?
The Exchange servers will be handled by WanSyncHA from XOsoft.
The Citrix server will authenticate users based on their Active Directory Account
The Payroll Lawson server is in a workgroup and is not supported by me.
Our Domain is Windows Server 2003 native
There will be a site to site PRI and also the hotiste will have a T1 to the internet.
Thanks for all your help.
