Two campus sync'd AD servers
Hi guys, I am setting up a new network over the summer in our school. We have two buildings, about a half mile apart. They are connected by a 100mbs radio link on the roof. It is pretty stable but occasionally someone puts a tower crane or something in the way and we lose it for a few days.
I want to have a server in each building that runs the AD and has the user shares on them. I want people in building A to use server as their gateway/dns/ad server etc and when they go to building B, use server B etc.
Of course I need all the info in the AD and on the shares to be in sync. Is it possible to set something up that will sync the AD, GPO etc data every night and also sync any changes in shared data? This way if we lose the link people can still operate relatively normally.
Failover clustering doesnt seem to be what I need. Obviously we can't have a physical cable link between them or we wouldn't need this solution.
- Two servers, one LAN, physically separated with 100mbs radio link
- Need both servers to be AD servers and store the shares
- Need both server to be reasonably in sync (1/2 days old) for shares and up to date for AD, GPO info etc.
- Currently running one server for the whole place, what's the best way to set up the second?
Thanks in advance,
