I want to ask a rather difficult question about the best way, and most efficient way to configure DNS (and the network in general) for the following network.
4 Locations will be bridged with MPLS and each connection will have a 1.5mbps connection back to the host location (Location A). Bandwidth for internet will be fed through Location A.
Location A) 192.168.1.x
Location B) 192.168.2.x
Location C) 192.168.3.x
Location D) 192.168.4.x
Location A has a server running Active Directory for authentication as well as its acting as a fileserver. MPLS routers will handle DHCP, but whats the most effective way and efficient way to ensure that all locations get speedy access to the server residing on Network A.
Also, is it possible for Windows Server 2003 to replicate (in both directions) a fileserver to network attached storage devices that would reside at Location B, Location C, and Location D to minimize bandwidth usage over the network.
I have my own ideas, but I wanted to see what others out there would recommend. Thanks for your time!
