How much traffic will AD replication cause on my one forest/one domain network?
I am planning to install one forest and one domain for my head office and
five branch offices. (I have Frame Relay connecting all sites, a T1 on the head office and a 128K
Frication T1 on each branch.)
How much traffic will the replication cause? Will my 128K connection be enough to use it to
access other servers (Citrix and Exchange) besides the traffic generated from the domain
replication? Is this the best solution or is there another way to connect my branch users to
Exchange and Citrix server in the head office?
The amount of traffic will depend on the level of use of your network and the rate of changes
to the AD database. It is possible to deploy your configuration, but you may need to create sites
to use to manage replication and define replication times and bandwidth throttles.
