Intrasite vs Intersite Replication and Domain Functional Levels
Assume that you are an IT administrator for a company with an existing AD Forest. The company is adding two, new branch offices and you have been tasked with designing a replication strategy prior to DC deployment.
Branch 1 will be connected to the Main Office via a pair of bonded T1 lines and will contain a Call Center with high employee turnover.
Branch 2 will be in a very remote location and will be connected to the Main Office via a 56k POTS line.
What would you recommend for site-link protocols and replication schedule/frequency for the branches? Would you recommend having redundant links to each branch?
Your instructor will use the following points for evaluating your performance in this assessment:
- Did you provide a recommendation for site-link protocols?
- Did you provide a replication schedule with frequency?
- Did you provide a recommendation for or against redundant links to each branch?
