Active Directory Site Design

1. When ever you create a new site  in AD consider the design of your network and replication topology.

2. Add the related sub nets associated with the physical site to AD site. It will help the clients to locate the nearest DC

3. Create Site links accordingly to manage the replication between sites.

4. Add only 2 sites in a site link not more than it will reduce the bandwidth consumptions and avoiding unnecessary connections created by KCC.

5.Intra site replication will occur with in the same site server. KCC will generate automatic connection object

6.Inter site replication will occur between the 2 sites based on the physical connectivity between the 2 sites and WAN configuration.
