I am working on a clients network and they complain of slow logins. I opened their AD sites and Services and noticed that the previous network administrator created sites for all of their remote site but all of their DCs are located at one central location.
Is there an advantage of doing this? When I expand one of the remote sites I see the servers but the servers cannot be expanded. It is almost like if they were removed from AD. But if I expand their central location then I can expand the servers and force replicate.
I have not see this type of setup. Usually if you create a site then you will also have a dedicated server listed it at that site and located at that physical location. This will help with long login time issues
All of the sites connect to the central building through a Gig link so I do see why the users are taking longer than 20 minutes to login
