Active Directory Child Domain Configuration / User Authentication
Posted on 2011-02-19
Windows 2003 R2 AD
I have corp.local and I created city1.corp.local and city2.corp.local (each child domain are interconnected to the corp.local by site to site VPN.
At the corp.local level we have :
An Accounting Terminal Server
I want to improve the login process into the corp Terminal Server for Child Domain user. Right now the user can successfully log on to the terminal server, (city1\user) but the total login process can take up to 2 min.
I added a child domain controller (city1) in the corp lan. But, this seems to stay slow. How can I get my Child domain User to authenticate fast to the Terminal Server.
I'm looking to Add Site in the Site and Service, but I never played much with it except for testing purposes. Should I go this path or there is a more easy way to do it.
FYI : city1 and city2 are managed independly by local administrator (I'm working for a WorldWide Company.
