I have a parent domain with 2 dc. I also have 2 dcs in a remote location that are mebers of a subdomain. I am adding 2 more dc to a new location that is part of my parent domain. To control replication I will place the 2 new dcs in one site. Should I place the 2 dcs in my subdomain also in there own site or shoudl I just include them as part of my main site.
