I have a few questions about sites. My network consist of multiple vlans.
There are several DCs in the default-first-site. All replications occurs
with no problem without having to specify subnets.
I understand that by creating sites and submets, it can save on bandwidth,
especially when sites are actually connected by slow wans. In addition
workstations which are on the same subnet/vlan will authenticate with the DC
on the same subnet.
Let's say my setup is as follows:
All sites are in the Defualtsitelink
DC1 in NY
DC2 in NY
Site 2 subnet 192.168.1.0, 10.0.1.0
DC3 in NJ
DC4 in NJ
Site 3 192.168.2.0, 10.1.1.0
DC5 in MA
DC6 in MA
VLAN in Network
192.168.1.0, 10.0.1.0, 192.168.2.0, 10.1.1.0, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168
1- What would happen if I created several new sites and assigned subnets to
the new sites, but did not specify any subnet for the default site?
a- What would happen to the DC's in the other subnets?
b- What would happen to workstations in other subnets?
2- What if I specify one of the other subnets to the default-first-site,
let's say 22.214.171.124, does this mean that workstations that are on undefined
subnets (not specified in any sites) will have no where to authenticate?
