I have an 2003 AD network with several subnets.
I wish to set up different replication timings for different subnets within the AD.
Using the AD Sites and Services MMC I have the DEFAULTIPSITELINK properties open (see screen shot attached)  and wish to add a subnet to have a replication time greater than the standard.
Do I move th esubnet that needs changing into the "sites NOT in the site link" and give it a different COST and replicate every time. Not sure I apply a different cost to a subnet and timing ?

Appreciate any help here.

You generally only want to have two sites in a site link.  You can create new site links and put the appropriate sites in the site links based on your network.  One common method is hub-spoke  where there are site links between your HQ and your remote sites

HQ to Remote site 1
HQ to remote site 2

etc

...again it depends on your network.

Thanks

There are only two sites in this link - Primary and DR.

I want the DR site to have a long replication period as I want to ensure that it is essentially an AD "island" separate from the primary platform.

If I have AD issues on the primary I don't want them immediately propagating to the DR site, so I need to know where the replication period should be set and what I can safely extend it out to.

Thanks.

Where on the Sites and Services MMC do you create a different replication rule for an individual site?
