EBS & Remote Office using Read Only AD

Posted on 2011-10-11
Last Modified: 2013-11-10
I have a two year old installation of EBS and desire to add a domain attached member server in a remote office. I have the server built and would like to implement the Branch Office features of the Server 2008 R2 but I am having a difficult time figuring out where to start.
Does the server need to be joined to the domain first? How does TMG come into play? Can EBS even support this?
All I want to do is have a single domain with logon services and AD replication in the remote office.

    BrancheCache is new technologie which is part of Windows Server 2008 R2.   So you would require a Windows 2008 R2 server in the main office to act as the Content Server and Windows 2008 R2 Server in the Branch Office to handle the hosted cache....for more info go here

    Since EBS has the earlier Windows Server 2008 server versions, you might want to consider using DFS-R to replicate files between offices
