Will this DHCP setup work?

Quick question and hopefully some quick points.

I'm building out a new office and wanted to know if this is going to work:

Office 1 (existing)
We have two Domain Controllers here running Windows Server 2008 on the 172.10.x.x network, handling DNS and DHCP.

Office 2 (new)
Can I put a Windows Server 2008 R2 server here to also run as a Domain controller and handle DHCP and DNS, but run it on the 172.20.x.x network?

Both offices will be on the same domain and are connected via an IPSec tunnel.

If I do, can the Office 2 server be a RODC?

Thanks! any suggestions for a better way would help too!

That shouldn't be a problem. The broadcast domain for the DHCP should end at the vpn tunnel so no issues.
Any reason why you want to make the office 2 server read only?

Read only? no, I guess i dont have a good reason anymore.

Maybe I should make it a regular DC...but what happens if the IPSec tunnel goes down for a bit?
Ernie BeekExpertCommented:
Nothing serious. It would be a problem if it went down for days though.
