  • Branch Office without secondary DC

    3 Warehouses with T1's and a ISP provided vpn between all 3 warehouses. I have one dc running SBS2008 at the main warehouse. At one of the warehouses, there are only 5 users so I don't plan on installing a secondary dc. My current method for authentication is I let the pc's get ip address automatically from the isp provided cisco router but I put in a static the ip address of the sbs2008 server across the street as the dns server. This seems to be working ok. Should I add the WINS feature to the sbs2008 server and point the client to that address? I am asking because I have mapped drives pushed out to the GPO and these 5 pc's arent getting them when they log in. I can see them from the SBS2008 server and offer remote assistance and they can manually map drives to the sbs2008 server no problem. What am I missing.
