When replicating AD to a remote disaster-recover site, is it better to use different user accounts on that site?  If users are logging on there, it's because here is dead, so if the same IDs are used, how do we keep scripts, etc, on the DR site from pointing to objects back here?  (Note:  It's important to use the same IDs because other processes are based on AD authentication credentials).

Using DFS would be a good option if you are referencing files in logon scripts etc

You could use \\domainname.com\dfsshare in the scripts so they would be accessible from both locations
