  • Same AD Domain with 400 clients

    We have on our institution 400 computers on a LAN and it was important all computers are in the same Active Directory domain.
    Due organization security it is important that all computers are separated in 5 VLAN's with same AD domain.

    What is the best methodology to implement this? The solution is create 5 AD sites where each site has a domain controller on each VLAN?

    More info required. Advice or possible solutions cannot be provided from a 3 line post.

    Are these 400 machines all in the same building or are they located in different/remote locations?
    How many DCs do you presently have in the organisation?
    I don't understand the need for VLANs. If you want security why not create Groups in AD and assign the appropriate permissions so the different Groups do not have access to another Groups data?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      All machines are on the same physical building with high bandwith. Now we have three DC's in three diferent Domains, but we need merge all in one domain only.

      The main objective because we need vlan's is that we are a High School and donīt want Student's machines communicate with Teacher's and administrative People machine's.

        This is what i would do. Nice and simple.

        Create your VLAN's using an appropriate switch.
        Create your Sites in AD.
        Install DC's into relevant Sites.
        Create OU structure to reflect Sites.
        Move client computers in ADUC to the relevant OU.
        Move users in ADUC to the relevant OU.
