  • remote connectivity

    We have two remote office which are connected to our HQ by 128 kbps link. Each location has minimum 100 users.

    how can I design my AD so that if this link gets down, remote users can still log in to DC ?

    Shall I place one ADC in each remote location or create one domain in each remote site?

    one dc per site (preferably two) and make sure both are GC servers

      Maybe I just have "Certification Examitus" but this query sounds exactly like an exam question.

        And there strikes the answer.

        Install at least 2 DC's per site and set them up as GC's and job done.

        Sit back and take the accolades when the WAN link goes down.

        BTW a 128kbps line is a bit slow these days isn't it

        ***EDIT***

        It may also be worthwhile setting up sites for your AD infrastructure
