Route active directory authentication to different site.
Posted on 2009-05-18
Hi I have an AD forest with several child domains and physical sites connected with VPN connections. Not all sites have VPNs to every other site.
Say I have 3 sites A, B and C
Site A is connected to Site B by VPN
Site B is connected to Site C by VPN.
We have a top level domain root.com with domain controllers in all three sites. We also have a child domain child.root.com that only has domain controllers in Site C
What I wanted to know is is it possible to configure AD so that a User in Site A can logon to the child domain even if they can't directly route to the domain controller of that domain. Is it possible to get the domain controllers from the parent domain to process the authentication?
Any ideas or is this not possible with a direct connection.
