Is it a good idea to create an Active Directory site without a domain controller?
Posted on 2009-04-23
I have several branches with different subnets. They are connected via VPN over not-so-fast ADSL. Currently I have two domain controllers in a central site (A) and another domain controller in a secondary site (B). For other subnets, I haven't yet configured sites or domain controllers. I thought I was going to wait until I get a domain controller for each subnet before configuring site, but now I get a warning in Event Viewer that says, "During the past 4.25 hours there have been 426 connections to this Domain Controller from client machines whose IP addresses don't map to any of the existing site in the enterprise..." The EventID is 5807. Will this be resolved once I configure a site for each subnet?
