Optimizing AD and Windows 2003 R2 sites for high latency WAN links?

Discussion in 'Server Setup' started by Robert Gordon, Jan 2, 2008.

  1. I am extending our corporate AD 2003 domain overseas, and have created a
    dedicated site and subnet for the overseas office. The overseas site
    will be connecting to our primary corporate headquarters via a hardware
    based VPN. Each side of the VPN will have a synchronous Internet
    connection of at least 2 MB, and there will be less than 100 users
    behind each side of the VPN. I am placing a dedicated Exchange Server
    and AD server at each site, to minimize the amount of bandwidth required
    for communication across the WAN connection.

    Are there any tips or gotchas I should look out for, when I extend our
    network across this WAN link?

    The only bit I can think of is to make sure you do the IFM promotion (kb
    311078) to save yourself some time setting up the new DC...
