One Site Multiple Physical Locations
Posted on 2014-04-12
I recently started working at a new company and while assessing their topology, there are changes I would like to make, but want to make sure how this could effect their current structure.
As it stand right now, this company has 1 Forest - 1 Domain - 1 Site - 2 DCs - 20 Different Physical locations.
Both DCs are running 2008 R2 and one is located at the Main Office and the other DC is located at an offsite location for disaster purposes.
My question is, I would like to separate each physical location into a separate site. For budget purposes right now, I will not have the option to purchase additional DCs. Am I going to run into problems if I create additional sites? Each physical location are currently using different networks. 10.10.20.0 - 21.0 - 22.0 etc. Seeing that they are all authenticating against DC1 what kind of walls would I come up against if I created separate sites?
Thanks for any recommendations or articles you can provide to help me with this question.
