Humm, so you're not using the same domain for the entire company? In
my situation, we have 5 remote offices, and all using the same domain,
and if for some unknown reason our links (yes, we do have redundant
links) go down, these offices should be able to work with minimal
interruption (by saying this i mean, users should be able to change
their passwords, machines also should be able to update their
accounts, etc).
