Hi,

I have 2 servers at 2 different locations, DC is running SBS 2008, the TS is running W2k8r2.

Users dial in remotely to the TS, there is a VPN link between the 2 servers.

I want to setup AD replication on the TS Server to speed up loggin on, does any one have an idiots guide?

Thanks

C

You can't replicate user information to the TS itself. You would need to deploy a second DC and a second AD site in the remote site to store the replicated user information.

As has been said you need a second DC if you want to have another copy of AD. for security reasons its never a good idea to install AD and TS on the same machine.
