  • Site Based Logons, DFS-R, & Remapping Drives

    Hey all,

    I am confused on how to do this & the order to set this up:

    Currently:
    - Two sites with about 50 users each that are currently replicating data using DFS-R.
    - Users get their home & common drives through the logon script and AD.
    - Win2008 R2 Servers. About 60 XP & WIN7 clients.

    Proposed:
    - Set users in both sites to logon by site. If they travel to eithe site #1, #2, or dial in to either RDS server: they will always have access to thier data
    - Have users get mapped drives via GP instead of logon script/AD

    Questions:
    - How do I create site based logons?
    - Is there a best way to setup DFS-R for each site if I can going to use site logons?

    My thoughts on the order:
    - Setup two new DFS namespaces based on sites and ensure data is replicating
    - Create site based logons GP
    - Start removing each user's logon script & home DIR mapping and have them start using the newly created GP

    Thanks in advance.

    Site based logons: put a logon script into a GPO and link it to the site (remember GPO processing order, though: L-S-D-Ou). As you say, remove any directly assigned logon scripts

    DFS-R: Works fine across sites IF you have sufficient bandwidth and IF you give it enough time to replicate fully.
