Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a distributed Network, with a SharePoint server located in a remote office that is part of company domain via VPN.

When the Sharepoint server queries anything AD related performance isn't ideal.

Can I do anything about this? Somehow configure AD for better handling over VPN? Or possibly setup a 2nd DC on the remote side that can sync with primary DC and have Sharepoint query secondary?

Any advice welcome.

  1. Install a DC at the remote site.

  2. Set up ADS&S for both sites/subnets.

  3. Configure the Sharepoint server and clients at the remote site to use the remote site DC for primary DNS.

Will objects automatically sync? Users, Org Units, etc? –  JL. Jul 3 '11 at 21:10
