VPN connection to do the replication with server VPN role

I am adding a branch location to my main office. I have a domain server in the HQ and now adding a domain server in the branch office and will set up a site-to-site AD replication.
I will need a VPN connection to do the replication; I do not want to replace my routers to a VPN router, rather would install the server VPN role and make a VPN connection between both host servers.

The domain server is a hyper-v server

Is this something you would recommend?

I *dont* recommend installing remote access roles on a domain controller.

And truthfully, even the lowest of low end business class routers do site-to-site VPNs (SonicWall TZ-1xx, watch guard,"edge" devices, etc.)

Which makes me at least suspect that. If you'd have to replace your router(s), they are consumer-class devices and probably should be replaced. Even if you aren't needing VPN. This is just a good sign that you are using the wrong tool for the job.

VPN routers are not expensive and replacing the router will be the easiest and probably least expensive way to get Branch connectivity
