Hello Everyone. This is my first post here. I just want to say first that this site has been nothing but extremely helpful. I have a AD/Exchange question. I'm not new to Exchange or Active Directory but I wouldn't consider myself an expert by any stretch. I've had 2 DC's and an Exchange server on site for a few years now and everything runs well. We have a remote office and we decided to put a DC out there. I created the DC onsite and then shipped to the remote office. It's hooked up to the network there and replicates fine with the home office. I have not set up any of the PC's there to the domain so it's just there replicating changes. My boss monitors the internet usage/bandwidth for the workstations/servers in the office. He's noticed 2 separate times, a large spike in data being sent between the remote DC and the exchange server here. Around a 1 gig of data being sent back and forth. I understand things need to replicate but I'm unsure why there is so much data being sent back and forth. This is my first remote DC so I figured let me talk to the experts here and listen to what it could be. If you guys need any addition information please let me know. Thanks in advance.
