I’ve been using all the useful info Petri has to offer but i’ve stumbled across a problem i cant find a resolution for. The company I work for is currently looking to connect our 9 sites together and we’re testing adding sites to our Dc which is running Server 2003. We have a vpn created between our sites and i’m researching the process of adding a site in sites and services. I’ve spent hours on the web and gone through microsofts write ups as well but i still have some questions.
It seems the general idea i’m getting is that you create a site in the AD DC for the remote site and then link the sites.I’ve read the writeups on how to do these and they seem pretty straight forward but i’m still stumped on a few things.
For instance is there something specific i should be naming the site or site link? Most of the write ups just say use the geographical location.
Also how do i add another locations server to our main domain? I’m assuming i go through dcpromo but i’m not sure what steps i take during this process to connect the sites.
