Best Practices

The following are best practices from this chapter:

  • Perform all tests with DHCP, WINS, and RODC in a lab environment.

  • Define a maintenance schedule for DHCP, WINS, and all other Microsoft JET-based databases on a quarterly or semiannual basis.

  • Implement redundancy in a DHCP and WINS infrastructure.

  • Dedicate multiple utility servers running WINS in large environments.

  • Properly plan the most efficient placement of DCs and GC/DCs in an environment.

  • Use a single DC configured with universal group caching for Active Directory sites with fewer than 50 users that do not need a local GC for services such as Exchange.

  • Use at least two DCs in Active Directory sites with between 50 and 100 users.

  • Deploy RODCs in branch offices to reduce security risks, reduce network traffic, and improve end-user logon times.
