I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Based on this and other questions you've posted, it's beginning to sound as if we're completing homework questions for you?

1) No, it is not true
2) I know to install Active directory (Domain Controller, Replica, Child Domain, Moving the Roles of FSMO, etc)
3) However, It is true that i have not yet got the Experience in the Production Environment
4) I just need the 2nd Opinion (Of course from somebody who is KNOWLEDGEABLE and SINCERE to provide it; the ACCUSATION is unfortunate and UNHEALTY)


The term bridgehead is used in many different products, and essentially it simply means a server which has the task of co-ordinating traffic going in and out from a whole group of other servers. In Active Directory, this is applied on a site-by-site basis, where you designate bridgehead server(s) in every site you have. These servers in each site are responsible for handling the replication traffic between that and other sites, rather than having all the DCs in that site communicating over the site-to-site links.

It gets more complicated in multi-domain environments.

I post this on the assumption this isn't a homework question :-)
