Replicate AD to speed up logging on

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

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.
