Regarding the Maxpagefile setting or other LDAP policies....Do these settings replicate to all domain controllers or do you have to manually go to each domain controller and use the Ntdsutil then reboot each DC.....

Have you seen:
This seems to indicate that LDAP policy settings are per forest rather than per domain controller as they are stored within the CN=Extended Timeout,CN=Query-Policies,CN=Directory Service,CN=Windows NT,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=X container

Thank you for the quick response...I have seen the article....but during a test run of Ntdsutil is asked for a reboot of the DC.....and I was unsure if this setting would replicate automatically....So you are saying that it is per forest and will automatically replicate to all DC's???

It seems that the setting can be done per DC or Site..I would think it would be safer to change these settings on a per DC basis? ....

I guess that would depend on what you need to up the maxpagesize setting for and how big you want it. If your application is configurable to a specific DC then you could get away with changing the setting on just one.
