Are multiple sites needed for a single Active DIrectory domain and single forest?
Posted on 2008-02-12
I'm wondering if there are any advantages or disadvantages for creating multiple sites for an AD enviornment with one single forest and one single domain. Our domain is expected to grow to about 10,000 users, and our network enviornment consists of a city-wide campus between several different buildings, all of which are on the same network but different subnets.
We have setup multiple domain controllers within the various subnets to balance load, but would you recommend creating multiple sites and multiple global catalog servers as well? What's the best architecture for a seemingly flat, but large AD enviornment?
