Creating a Site

When creating a site, Active Directory and network administrators must decide how often AD will replicate between sites. They also must share certain information such as the line speed between the sites and the IP addresses of the servers that will be replicating. Knowing the line speed helps determine the correct cost of a site link. For the network administrator, knowing which IP addresses to expect network traffic from on certain ports is helpful when troubleshooting or monitoring the network. To create a site, the AD administrator needs a site name and subnet and also needs to know which other sites will replicate to the new site.

To create a site, follow these steps:

1. Launch Server Manager on a domain controller.
