I have a costumer with 1 domain and 8 sites, bridge all site links is disabled.

I saw that on all sites the ISTG is disabled. Is that because bridge all site links is disabled?

When I do Active Directory audits, I always check to make sure that bridge all site links is enabled. It should be enabled and since you are auditing sites and services impact, verify that Autosite Coverage is enabled in the default domain controllers policy.

Thank you, i thought so, that the reference is to bridge all site links.

What do you mean with Autosite Coverage?

Autosite coverage is not enabled in the default domain controller policy by default, but must be turned on.
There are many articles you can search for and learn about autosite coverage. I do not need to reiterate them here.
It is under the netlogon folder in the computer config section of the default DC policy.
Again, just do research by searching and learn about autosite coverage.
