  • Greatest amount of DCs you have seen in a forest?

    What is the biggest amount of DCs you have seen or heard of ?

    Have you ever heard of a "world record" , maybe a Microsoft whitepaper on the biggest AD installations or something like that?

    I'm also curious as to what the problems would be on such a beast.. for example, creating a new GPO that has all the ADM files in sysvol is a much bigger move in a 1300DC domain than in a 5 DC domain and involves special steps in some cases..

    Thanks

    I don't know what the largest amount of DC's a forest has as a world record, but I do know for one thing is that I got 34 DC's at my forest all over the globe.
    regarding ADM files replication in the SYSVOL , we filtered them out, meaning they do not replicate.
    it is possible to configure filtering in users and computers under System -> Frs replication, you can configure what file types to filter from replicating.
    it will not delete or stop existing files from replicating , but it will dam sure stop from new files from replicating, that is the solution I implemented in our Forest.
    BTW - FRS Replication is per domain not per forest.
