I am trying to use UCS to achieve the following design specifications as per what Microsoft refers to as Flexible Single Master Operation (FSMO):
i. I want all clients at the remote offices to authenticate and use resources using their local DC. The DC at the Home or Head Office should be their secondary choice. They should use this whenever there is a hardware failure.
ii. I want the Home office DC be used by the people at the Home office, domain changes, creation of users, groups, GPOs should also be done here, and all these should be pushed to the DCs at the branch office (or what we call replication). Changes should only be pushed out for replication by the DC at the Home Office.
What combination can achieve this with UCS? Master at Home office and Backup at Remote Offices? / Master at Home Office and Slave at Remote Offices? / Master at Home and Master at Remote?
Thanks in Advance.
