We have three campuses with T1s connecting them. A microsoft consultant told us we have no need for multiple sites but I wanted to have a global catalog server at each campus so users can still log into their systems if the connection goes down.
Our exchange server is at the main campus. We had users experiencing timeouts trying to connect to the exchange server. When I disabled global catalog on both remote campuses the problem went away.
Is there a way to designate a preferred global catalog server so the main campus GC will be used under normal circumstances but systems can use the other GCs if there is a problem? Does anyone know the algorithm used to choose which GC is used?
