    Re: Ad sites

    Ask the person who set up your infrastructure for your specifics

    In general:
    Hub Site -- central point where Satellite sites can connect to
    Satellite Site -- see above
    DR Site -- "Disaster Recovery", normally at a 3rd party datacentre

      Re: Ad sites

      in basic terminology, an AD 'site' is a set of computers that are grouped together, normally physically located very closely and have a boundry of a "slow" network link.

      for instance, you might have a physical location of your head office, where you have 15 servers. THis might be site "HO"

      then, across a 10Mb wan link, you might have "datacentre" site, another 15 servrs, all located together in a single location.

      it can get more confusing, where by you can have say, another site, physically separate from the HeadOffice Site, call it RemoteOffice
      which is connected by a 4Mb link.
      you COULD make this a separate site, but then you could also make it part of the "HO" site
      it really depends on who laid out your interconnects, and why.
