I work for a company with offices in 7 countries worldwide. We will have to put a server in each office and of course connect them in a full mesh network.
We will have about 10 servers which users will have to connect with RDP (Terminal servers) and work on them. They have to be able to authinticate with no problems, hopefuly using their windows login credentials - hope all this makes sense.
Now the question :
Woudl you recommend having 1 global domain and then have DC's in each office which replicate with all the other ones ?
Or maybe have 1 central DC with the main domain and then have sub-domains in each branch office and set up trusts between them ?
Please give your view as this is a bit new to me. I understand the rules of AD and the way tit works so don't worry to use technical terms. Any input will be really appreciated.
