It sure helps!! Thank you!! :)
As for the basic configuration of sites, I had already done and it is ok.
My doubt was about your placement regarding subnets where the DC would not
be directly connected, would be placed as close to a site as possible. I
could not see it via RSAT.
Anyway, thank you for your willingness to help!
