Use AD Sites and Services

by techrepublicsucks In reply to How to prevent users from ...

Use AD Sites & Services to make a Site for each of your business locations. For this example I will use HQ, B1 and B2. Assuming that HQ is the location of your first DC in your Forest, create a Connector to connect HQ to B1. Create another Connector to connect HQ to B2. Use ?IP? as the Inter-site Transport. Move your domain controllers into the sites that you created for them. Under each server will be NTDS Settings, select properties and enable Global Catalog. You should also Test replication. Read the Pop-Up messages. (Save a screenshot.) I kept the Default-First-Site container even though I don?t use it anymore. Just in case I need to ?roll-back? at some point. Your users should now be authenticated by their local DC. My assistance comes without warranty so please read up on what AD Sites and Services are all about and test. Good Luck!
