Active Directory over VPN
Posted on 2014-01-19
I am about to setup a few servers in remote locations. They will all be connected via VPN to the main office and all on Active Directory. I want to just have the main Active Directory server in the main office and the remote locations authenticating via the VPN to the main office's DC.
The VPN's are all hardware VPN (the Routers in each location will be handling Gateway to Gateway VPN's)
Each location of course will have its own IP subnet... i.e. main office is 192.168.200.xx and the remote locations will be 192.168.201.xxx and so on up to 192.168.220.xxx.
Now, here is the question I have. What do I need to do to the DNS Settings on the Active Directory DC to make all sites work properly? I have done this in the past and didn't do anything and it just had a lot of problems, so I am suspecting that I should have done something to the DNS Settings (i.e. add a reverse lookup zone for each area).
Looking forward to the Experts help!!
