AD Seperation


I have 1 Active Directory with 3 sites. My client want to seperate the 3 sites with one indepedant AD by site.

Do you know how to do that ?

I have 2 ideas :

=> Disconnect multisite VPN & recover FSMO rôles on each site on the site server.
=> Classic migration to a new domain (but I have to install a new domain server & it will be longer than my first idea).

Thanks for your advices

Lee is correct.  I assume the client is trying to solve a problem by splitting the sites into domains.  What problem are you trying to solve for?  There are likely other, less drastic, alternatives.

You should require at least 2 DCs for each domain, meaning you would need 6 DCs, minimum, so they may have to purchase additional hardware to support the proposed site "split".  This becomes a management nightmare, for you, I assume.
