RODC Build and Deployment

Hello All,

I have a remote site with poor ADSL link.  Users currently have severe issues authentication against Head Office DC's.  I am looking to place an RODC on site - there are only 10 users so will place them in the RODC password cache.  My question is regarding the build.

I was looking to build and promote on site - is it acceptable to change IP and Gateway l before shipping? I think that the DC will struggle to pull an major sync.

I don't want to change site configuration until the server is actually resident on site - anyone see any problem with this?

I will be setting Universal Caching

Is there anything else I should note?

It is standard practice to set up on site, set the IP details after you finish a sync, to what the new site will be using, shut down and then ship.  You should configure sites and services correctly before the final sync .

Nothing wrong with that at all, your plan is normal.

On syncing - am I right is saying avoid SMTP?  I remember reading that it will only partially sync?  ISTG will deal with the replication to KCC? can I schedule replication and what is the standard replication between sites - 180 minutes?
