Using AD in High-Latency satellite networks?

    I have an environment where some areas (Off-Shore Oil and Gas corp) the
    connection is very restricted using WAN Satellite links with 256 Kb/s, 512
    Kb/s with latencies varying from 200 ms to 450 ms

    I suggested using autonomous AD Forests, without Trusts, with no connection
    to the AD Forest of the Main Office due the fact that users on board don´t
    have Logins in the Main Office, working in a autonomous way.

    I´m right? The High-Latency is a primary reason to NOT integrate the AD
    environment? My idea is that RPC traffic works badly on WAN Links with
    high-Latency connections (SLB ou SeaTEL Dynamic/Directional WorldWide

  2. Hello FB,

    To have replication working properly and also user authentication and data
    traffic, you should have a T1 connection(1.5Mbit) or at least 1Mbit.

    But must you connect them to your forest?

    Best regards

  3. You're right, and this will not be happy. I would suggest Terminal Services
    and thin clients instead.

    It will be intersting but is not a concern now, i prefer to have several
    autonomous forests and administer and manage separatedly insted having
    replication problems, lack of contact in areas where the satellite may be not
    function as planned...
