AD design advise
Posted on 2006-10-30
I'm trying to design a network. Here is my plan, tell me what you think.
Forest Root, Domain Controller, Exhcange, SAN.
Connected to Site A via VPN over T1. Joined to the domain in Site A and grouped as a Site in Sites and Services.
It would have it's own DC.
Currently only connected via the internet, RDP. Will eventually have a site to site VPN to Site A.
May or may not have it's own DC. Joined to the same domain in Site A and segmented into a site via Sites and Services.
This way I can schedule replication for off peak hours between the DCs and still administer everything from one location. Our main goal is something that can grow quickly with us. Right now there is only one Admin at site A. In a year from now we foresee the need for another admin at Site B. Would this design allow to quickly move to seperate domains or child domains under the same forest?
