Site OU is very slow to edit...

Hi folks,

I have replication occuring between two sites right now, let's say A and B. Replication works great, and everything flies.

I have an OU that I created, called Site B. In it, I have a policy local to that site.

When I edit this OU on the local domain controller at Site B, it's EXTREMELY slow. However, if I go to the master, at site A, everything flies.

I think the reason for this is that my domain controller is trying to pull resources off Site A every time, and thus it's slow over the WAN link.

Any ideas to help me solve this? I would rather edit the OU 'locally' at Site B, and then have it replicate the changes out at a later time.

Thanks!

In Group Policy Editor, goto View>DC Options.
You can set a preference there.


What I think you should also do is configure Sites in AD Sites and Services and create & associate the correct subnets to those sites.  Move the server for the remote site(s) into the appropriate, newly created Site.

Scratch the last thought, I didn't realize I was working with you on that previously.

It's important to make sure they are correctly configured though.

Subnets are configured properly... not sure what you mean about the Group Policy editor.... I can't seem to find anything there but please let me know *which* editor you're talking about... I tried "gpmc.msc" and the sites and services one, I just can't find anything that would give me the info I'm lookin for.

THanks :)

In GPMC, when you select a GPO you can right click it and select Edit.

The editor will open up with the policy loaded.  This is the editor I refer to.  Normally, it's GPEDIT.MSC but you need to open the policy first with GPMC once that tool has been installed.

So which option should I choose? "Use any available domain controller?"

Since you have Sites setup, that option most likely would force the MMC to open it from the local DC, so yes.

It's improved a bit... but still slow.

Any other ideas?

If it's any consolation to you, ours open slowly also.  It has to do with loading of the ADMs into the console.  I don't think there's a whole lot to do if it's talking to the local DC now.
