I am in the throes of putting a network design together for a new location. The plan is to virtualize everything, including our AD box, phones, etc...
In the event that the line ever goes down and the local computers need to authenticate or access the virtual AD box, what would happen on a Windows Network? Would it be advisable to have a local on prem AD box to alleviate those worries? What case examples are you experts familiar with in handling a fallen line where most resources have been virtualized? Any insight in this regard would be most appreciated.
