Domain replication after VPN Tunnel Move

We are currently moving our "central office" which has a number of small vpn sites that have a single GC / DHCP /DNS server.  We have setup the new office and installed additional domain controllers.

Is there anything we need to change for active directory replication etc etc after we "swing the vpn tunnels" to the new office.

Thankyou in advance.

I am assuming that the "old" location will be disconnected.

If you are using a different subnet at the new location, make sure that it is created and assigned to the same Site ( in AD Site and Services). If you use the same IP subnet, that's easier..nothing to do in the AD topology.

Before disconnect and shut down the the old office, you may want to properly move the FSMO roles to the new location DC and dcpromo the old DC to keep the AD clean.

I hope this helps

Thankyou ...

Is there a "best" practice to check the remote sight is replicating the AD correctly.
