I'm working on setting up an whole new AD infrastructure. Here is the breakdown of what I intend to do:
- corp-dc-[01,02], running Win2k8 R2. These controllers are used for the forest to join the child domains. It will be hosted in a data center in California.
- location1-dc-[01,02], running Wink28 R2. This is going to be child.domain joined to the forest.
- location2-dc-[01,02], running Wink28 R2. This is going to be child.domain joined to the forest.
Location 1 and 2 are offices in California in addition to one more state. While considering the setup above, I need to determine how to setup the Global catalog, Schema master and RID master to make sure that I have a good level of redundancy between all three geo locations.
I want to define the domain controller roles to make sure that each controller has role X and Y, etc.
