You are working on a project for a medium-size corporation with 5 locations in different cities. Each location has 2 domain controllers. The domain has AD sites that are representative of each physical location. You have heard of global catalog servers and universal group caching. You want to see how you could make use of these in your environment.

As a team, complete the following:

  • Research and discuss global catalog (GC) server and universal group caching.
  • Explain the benefits that each has in a domain environment.
  • Consider the geographical distribution of your customers’ network.
  • Using Visio (or similar software), diagram a planning deployment depicting each site.
    • Clearly identify where GC should be placed and where universal group caching will be enabled.
    • The solution should have 4 domains—1 for the HQ and 4 for each branch location.
