Active Directory two locations
Posted on 2011-09-08
Hi I am setting up a new network at two sites approx 100 miles apart.
Between the two sites I have 2mbits per/s bandwidth routed link.
I would like to know the best way - how to, set up replication between the two sites so I can achieve the following.
1. Local Logon to active directory without local users having to go across the routed link to logon or access files.
2. Remote users at the 2nd, distant site, will after logon, get their Exchange email from the HQ SBS 2011 site but store their data files on their local server.
3. occassionally local clients at HQ will want to access files on the remote server.
4 occassionally remote clients will want to access files on the HQ server.
5. I do not require help with directory rights etc or the networking etc,, rather I would like help with AD replication - PDC and BDC setup so each site works locally most of the time.
