    Hey all,

    I am confused on how to do this & the order to set this up:

    Currently:
    – Two sites with about 50 users each that are currently replicating data using DFS-R.
    – Users get their home & common drives through the logon script and AD.
    – Win2008 R2 Servers. About 60 XP & WIN7 clients.

    Proposed:
    – Set users in both sites to logon by site. If they travel to eithe site #1, #2, or dial in to either RDS server: they will always have access to thier data
    – Have users get mapped drives via GP instead of logon script/AD

    Questions:
    – How do I create site based logons?
    – Is there a best way to setup DFS-R for each site if I can going to use site logons?

    My thoughts on the order:
    – Setup two new DFS namespaces based on sites and ensure data is replicating
    – Create site based logons GP
    – Start removing each user’s logon script & home DIR mapping and have them start using the newly created GP

    Thanks in advance.
