SBS 2011 Folder Redirection with Multiple Locations
Posted on 2012-04-13
I have a customer with 3 locations. I am installing SBS 2011 Standard in one location and Server 2008 in the other two locations. The server 2008 server will be DC’s. All three locations are tied together using hardware IPSEC VPN at the gateway. They all have 10MBps down and 2MBps up. I am going to use folder redirection, but I think it will be too slow for the remote offices to point the folder redirection traffic back to the main office over the VPN. I would rather set it up so that each location can point the folder redirection to their local server. I know how to do this using AD and group policy. The problem is they also use RWW to connect to their computers from home. If I create new OU’s for the computers and users for their locations so I can apply separate Group Policies to each location, they will not show up in the SBS console and then they will not show up on the RWW site when they try to connect.
Does anyone know of a way to set this up so I can still use RWW for these clients?
