Adding AD sites to existing domain. What do i need to change.
Our school is based over five sites linked in over a WAN.
Currently its setup how the previous guy left it with one domain and one site (still named default-first-site-name).
I have setup DFS-R to replicate all data in a few of our admin folder (apps etc) and would now like to setup a domain namespace.
I have done this but where all computers are in the same site it will go to any of the five servers in the site to access the data rather than the one on site.
So by reading a little it looks like AD sites is what i need.
Problem is i've not done this one before. I will be trying it out on a demo network.
When i add new sites, will:
Users still be able to lgoin at any site?
Group policies still apply to all sites?
i have a single active directory for all sites?
Also any other tips or issues to watch out for would be appreciated.
