Inter-site transport configuration in windows 2003

Hello EE. I have a question about Inter-site Transport configurations. I have been deploying DCs in other sites which are on different subnets to minimize the traffic coming to the main site. Previously all the remote sites came through VPN tunnels to the main location for Email, DHCP, DNS, Content Filtering, etc.. At the bigger locations I am deploying AD servers running their own instance of DHCP, DNS, and Content Filtering. When I configure Inter-Site Transport settings in the IP folder should all the DCs be included in "Sites in this site link"?

DCs don't go into site links...sites go in there.

You generally want to have two sites in a site link.  A common example

Site Link = HQ to RemoteLocation

The two sites in that case in the site link woudl be HQ & RemoteLocation

Thanks

Thanks for the info. Yes I see that they are sites and not Dcs. So even if you have more than two sites configured on your network only two is required for that particular setting?

You can have more but having two is the recommended method

Also additional suggestion since you are trying to control the traffic, it also depends upon how you put the your dc in a topology.

For example, you want the sites to be interconnected, then sitelink, sitelink bridge, site cost arrangement will be different,
or if you want that sites don't communicate with each other except via main site

Well, I would like the sites to communicate only to the main site and not with each other. I am not to clear on the impact of cost as one site has a 10 meg circuit and the other has a 3 meg circuit ( both ethernet over copper from an ISP)

You should be fine with those speeds,   What you are thinking about is typical, site links between Hub and spokes.


Thanks
