Active Directory replication connections

Naratech asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-13
I am getting some 1311 event ID's on my Operations Master/PDC emulator DC.  This may be due to an offline DC that is listed in my sites and services, but wanted to go over some replication connection questions.  How should AD connections be setup in AD sites and services?  I have a HQ site and 20 seperate branch sites all connected with a fast WAN link.  Should every site have an explicit connection to my Operations Master/PDC emulator?  I see the automatically generated AD connections, but they do not seem to make logical sense and seem too disjointed.

Thanks in advance for any help.
