I need a general answer here for this one. I have been told to become a child domain of Forest Root domain "WHY.com". I am "WHY.ME.com" I am running Server 2003 SP1 which sets the default Tombstone Service Live (TSL) at 180 days. Two questions arise from this:
1. Once my connection to WHY.com is reestablished, as long as it is withing my TSL deadline, is there anything I need to do, or should it automatically connect and begin replicating again?
2. Once my connection to WHY.com is lost (temporarily), how does my domain act generally in terms of performance? Is it functional, yet slow, because it is constantly searching for WHY.com? Or will it leave me too crippled to sufficiently function.
To answer a few questions, my domain is for local authentication, file & print share. WHY.com domain is also used for authentication, but additionally houses the Exchange server.
Any ideas how this will / will not work?
