    Hello again :). Just a couple of quick questions for you x-perts ;). i setup and installed another domain controller on teh domain. I setup
    both as Primay DNS Active Directory Integrated servers. Here's something I
    saw:When a client updates their DNS information in DNS, it automatically
    gets stored in AD; I saw that i didnt even have to replicate AD when i
    checked the other domain controller. Is this because since both Are primary
    DNS AD-I servers info gets written to both DC's since they are authorative
    for the zone? when i configure scope options on dhcp, should i use both ip's
    of the DNS servers for primary and secondary servers or is only 1 fine since
    the client should be able to find the other domain controller?

    when you create a user on one AD controller you don't have to force
    replication with the other for it to show up either. replication takes
    place in the background and it just happens automagically (the sweet
    mysteries of life, eh?) Timing is the thing.
    set up for both (in a real world enviornment) incase you ever want to
    take one of the DCs down.

  7. To control when it automagically happens. Delaying the result is just more

    John, jump onto Microsoft's website and do some searches for Active
    Directory and Sites and Services, there are any number of whitepapers and
    excellent technical articles available.
    In a nutshell though, as Neil said, replication is automatic *within* a site
    (and unless you've created other than the Default_First_Site, your DC's are
    on the same subnet, therefore in the same site) every 15 seconds. To control
    replication, you create Sites, create Subnets and then allocate Subnets to
    Sites. Once this is done, you can then control when replication occurs; once
    every 15 minutes, every hour, every day, etc. Go forth and read, mate, then
    pop back with questions :)

    i get to caught up and get confused sometimes when i read those white
    papers. my method is to do it first, ask the experts here, then do some
    reading to finish it off.

    sorry, that was just toooooo funny....experts...

    (seriously, dig out the details on inter-site vs intra-site as Wayne
    mentioned and pull out replmon to view a fiew things. read up on the
    replication protocols and as mentioned set up subnets and site in Sites
    and Services. You should setup actual subnets for this. If you don't have
    a router, you could multi-home a computer.)

    How am I supposed to get my computer into more than one home at a time?

    You really need to think before you speak.
