"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is this for a homework assignment? Sorry for being blunt, but it sounds like one and was posted within a minute of 2 similarly-sounding homework questions on the same subject. If so, we can help you arrive at the answer but not do the assignment for you.

Got it. I see a lot of those at this time so I had to ask. :)

I wish I could provide something more insightful, but one very useful application of a RODC is described here:
http://blogs.dirteam.com/blogs/jorge/archive/2009/01/01/domain-join-through-an-rodc-instead-of-an-rwdc.aspx

What I like about that configuration with using a RODC is that it provides extra security in terms of a DC that, even if compromised, won't expose the entire domain to as many risks as a traditional RWDC. Alsoo, it lets you put a firewall between the DCs to add another layer of protection.
