I am planning to setup AD in my company, and would like a little clarificaiton if anyone can help.
My setup is going to involve one ADS at the main location, and one DC at each branch office.
How do “Sites” differ from the “Domain”? is it best practice to configure both for one location? for example setting up town1.company.com as well as a “site” in the sites and services utility.
my branch offices have static IPs but all computers are behind the router/firewall. I have read that port forwarding doesn’t work. is it wise to setup a VPN connection to the AD Server? basically, will windows maintain the connection when it comes time to replicate?
I hope this wasn’t too much in one post.
I have a thousand questions :roll:
