Listing Domains and Number of Users for Each Location

Updated: March 28, 2003

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

The number of users for each regional domain that is represented in a location is one of the factors that determine the placement of regional domain controllers and global catalog servers, which is the next step in the site topology design process. For example, plan to place a regional domain controller in a location that contains more than one hundred regional domain users so they can still log on to the domain if the WAN link fails.

Record the locations, the domains that are represented in each location, and the number of users for each domain that is represented in each location. For a worksheet to assist you in listing the domains and the number of users that are represented in each location, see "Domains and Users in Each Location" (DSSTOPO_3.doc) on the Windows Server 2003 Deployment Kit companion CD (or see "Domains and Users in Each Location" on the Web at http://www.microsoft.com/reskit).

Figure 3.8 shows a completed worksheet listing the domains that are represented in each Trey Research location, and the number of users for each domain.
