I am currently creating a plan to delpoy a new domain network for my company. Currently they have 5 locations around North America and India.
Currenlty only one office has an Active Directory infrrastructure. This is for users only in that office approximately 150 users.
I have another Domain and Domain Controller for the company exchange service. Apart from India no-one users a Domain user account to log on, Exchange is connecting via https.
So as a compnay we have two totally seperate domain networks, My task is to propose a plan to create a state of connectivity between all sites using a single Active Directory infrastructure.
I understand that this is going to be a complex and drawn out process and I do not expect anyone here to provide a step-by-step process for this. My question is about resources on the best approach, i.e. Should each site be a sub-domain of mycompany.com? Or should we make everything a single domain with replicating Domain Controllers connected via VPN?
Its a big question, links etc to best practises are always welcome.
Thanks for your ideas.
