I recently realized that using multiple DC has a major drawback when
In my understanding, in a classical AD environment, sysvol share is
supposed to be a DFS share. This means that proximity rules are applied
when accessing to it.
When using samba it seems that we face a classical round-robin DNS,
which can lead to the situation where a machine on site A tries to fetch
its GPO (and scripts, and software) from a DC on site B (as per Murphy's
law, the slowest is the link between the two sites, the higher the
chances to use it).
Did I miss something?
