Are you replicating the entire database at specific intervals? Curious how it's set up. Obviously if a user is in a record, that record is locked.

So much of what you're asking depends on how your database is set up. Front end/Back end...and the type of synchronization involved.

I'm also curious, since you've already got it set up...if you have encountered any issues? or are you just asking of anyone else has?

I would think as long as both databases are part of the same root DFS tree structure, and permissions are set up correctly, you wouldn't encounter any issues.
