I have an Active Directory with multiple sites. The links between the sites are VPNs, and all sites connect to a central hub site. In the default site topology, Active Directory bridges ALL site links, and sites have automatically configured links between them that don't make sense when the NETWORK topology is hub/spoke with a central site as the hub.
I want to setup an Active Directory site topology that matches our network topology so that we do not have Active Directory domain controllers trying to connect to servers that they are unable to connect to because the site does not have a route that particular domain controller (i.e. there is no mesh network connectivity).
I have gone to Active Directory Site and Services --> Inter-Site Transports --> IP --> Properties and UNCHECKED "Bridge all Site Links".
I'm not sure of the next step...should I:
1. Create a new site link that has ALL sites in it
2. Create a new site link for each site, and include only the HUB SITE and the REMOTE SITE in it.
My goal is to end up with each remote site replicating with the (2) domain controllers that are at the hub site, and for the (2) domain controllers at the hub site to have replicas of EVERY SITE.
