Deploying Sites in AD
I have done some research on sites within AD and it seems to be the way to go. My only concern is deploying a site configuration into an existing network. There would be two subnets which would be affected which are in two different geographical locations. Can anyone share an experience deploying subnets into an exiting network, problems they encountered or recomendations they may have.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I deploy an AD site wherever I want my users (site aware) to authenticate to their local DC. Yes create a site at each physical site where you have a DC. Create your site links and move the server to the servers container in the site. To summarise:

A site is collection of one or more subnets (VLANs, segments etc). A site link defines intersite replication which is 180 minutes by default.

If done correctly you shouldn’t really have any issues. However I would perform a brief AD healthcheck using

netdiag

and DCdiag (replmon is very useful too!)

before and after the operation.
