Hello EE,
We currently have an environment setup where we have a parent forest

and a child domain where we have a domain controller at each of our 6 branch offices.
Each has it's own subnet and users log in locally.  All DNS is replicated.

I am wondering rather than having full DCs at each branch if we were to leave corporate as a full DC and the branches all read only what are the pros/cons?  Recommended?  Not Recommended and why?
