I would like to know where in AD sites and servers you configure a server to be a bridghead server.
If there is no server configured as bridgehead server, how is the traffic is exchanged between sites.

I also want to know how do you check that  a server is a bridghead server?

To check via command line run
repadmin /bridgeheads [DC_LIST] [/verbose]
Using sites and services
Expand your site where the server you want as a bridgehead is located.  Rigt click and select properties
Then you can select the protocol you want (usually IP) then click add -- see screenshot
The KCC will automatically select a brigehead.

Because if KCC elect a bridgehead server, you won't be able to see it. Correct?
