|Pretty new to windows server, so I've set up some virtual machines to practice. Consider a main office and a branch office and a small number of workstations.|
1) I'd like to use DFS namespace and replication for the file shares between branches. This way things stay synced that way. I've set this up, and it works well. But over the WAN/internet, i assume I'll have to setup a VPN to link the two networks, is this correct?
2) I've setup a domain controller at branch A with active directory and played around with some policies to get the hang of it.
3) I'd like them to be redundant with each other. Im not sure the wording im looking for here. But it would be super nice if branchA domain controller could go down and then branchB could handle the active directory and domain logons and the other way around, too. keeping the active directory user and computer settings synced (with DFS?). Is this sort of thing possible?
