    windows 2003 standard edition r2, using domain namespace only

    I've 3 DFS server runnning in country A, B, C

    1. Should i create a domain namespace in a *separate* servers or i can pick
    any countries's server to host domain namespace ?

    2. For high availability of domain namespace, should 2 servers be on the
    same AD site or namespace servers in different AD site ? ie country A server
    hosting a namespace, country B server hosting the same domain namespace ?

  2. IT Staff,
    Just as general guidance, you might not need very many namespaces in the
    organization If you think of it as a logical arrangement of data instead of
    physical, then you could have just one namespace for "Shared", and
    everything shared would be below that. Of course you can choose to fragment
    it into many namespaces, but people will then have several different trees
    to navigate.
    Only you will be able to answer the question about resilience. How do you go
    about creating resilience now for services, like your mail server? It
    depends on the layout of your infrastructure,

    i wish to create namespace servers for high availability.

    Must the namespace servers be 2003 enterprise r2 ? I read the help file that
    2003 standard r2 only support ONE namespace server.

    This is not the same as multiple name spaces. You can have Domain\DFSRoot\Asia,
    Domain\DFSRoot\Europe etc.
    Heck, YOU posted the answer to this less than a day earlier.
