Hi there,
I would like to know if would be possible to join a machine to a windows server domain 2008 via VPN site to site.
The problem is that we have a quit little offices which they don't have domain controller so.. i'd like to know if there is any problem in the future if we join the machines to the domain controller.. don't know.. DNS problem.. or logins problems when the tunnel is not available...

Any experience on this?

Thx,
CristianM,

You can always join workstation to domain via VPN tunnel. I used to do it. There is no issue. Just make sure you set DNS server address as your domain controller ID when you join workstation to domain. And set public DNS as secondary DNS.

When the tunnel is down, user will still able to log in to their machine without any problem. But when tunnel is down, they won't be able to change password of course.
