A working W3K model needed!Locked
In the process of W3K planning!!!
I have a w2k single domain model (all workstations wXP…native mode)across 5 ..slow…geographic sites. At site 1 I have the DC (all rolls) also/ DNS/DHCP/AD/GC. In each site I created a DC (not a child domain) w/AD/DHCP/DNS/GC.
these other 4 of these sites only contain approx 10 workstations each.
The single domain model works well but replication is a problem across slow networks
(almost more servers than workstations)
Would there have been less replication w/ child domains? and
W/ W3K I have heard that I can do with less…meaning less DCs. Is this feasable? Our users do not have roaming profiles.
To sum it up..with W3K.. Should i go with child domains? or single domain? or single with less DCs?
This is a lot to ask without knowing more but a basic idea is what I am after and possibly an email or two (to mull it over and do it may way anyway (: ))
Bottom line… less DCs(or hardware servers) if I can do it
