linking multiple sites - all using Active directory
Posted on 2011-09-27
I have just started supporting an organisation that is split over 5 sites. All the sites link back to a 6th central location for internet access via 10mb links.
Some of the sites already have DCs. We are considering implementing Googls Apps across the organisation too.
Users may spend 6 months at one location and then move to another.
Currently the sites are set up as 6 independent entities.
We would like to make it easier for users to move between sites by allowing them to use the same login details at the five sites.
What is the best way to proceed, Can I link the sites together somehow or do I need to implement a master DC at the 6th central site.
Also what about file storage. Currently files are stored on the DC at the respective sites. Do i need to create storage at the 6th or is there a better way.
Any advice would be appreciated.
