i have two AD sites witch are connectetd with vpn. the first one is site1 with the DC1 (server 2003) were all fsmo rolles are hosted. the second one ist site2 with DC2 (server 2008 R2) and no fsmo roles, but has the GC. At the same site2 there also is a exchange server 2010.
my problem is that when i start the "ad user and computer" snap-in on the DC2 at site2 it connects to the DC1 at site1. as the two sites are connected over WAN it takes some time till the snap-in connects. also the exchange server acts very sluggish.
what can i do to solve these problems. the first one is what can i do to connect the ad snapin at the same site.
