  • Hi,

    Planning for Domain Controllers in your environment has nothing to do with the amount of SIP enabled users or the amount of media traffic they generate.

    There is very little difference between a DC's workload for 100,000 users who are enabled for Skype for Business, and a DC's workload for 100,00 users who are not enabled for Skype for Business.

    Domain Controller planning is based on planning elements such as user count, specification of said DC's, Peak periods, physical VS virtual, expected growth, HA and DR requirements, site topology & link speeds, global catalogue preferences, FSMO role placement, and a bazillion other things.

    Skype for Business is not in that list, and should sit on top of an already well planned AD DS environment without need for any further change to it.

    That's why you can't find anything to explain those requirements.

    Kind regards
    Ben

  • Hi Jitender Kumar Rohilla,

    Agree with BenDonaldson.

    Based on my research, there is no document describes the capacity of DC for Skype for business server. For your purpose, you could refer the document “Capacity planning for Skype for Business Server 2015”, please refer to
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg399017.aspx

    Moreover, I will share a document about “Capacity Planning for Active Directory Domain Services”, please refer to
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/14355.capacity-planning-for-active-directory-domain-services.aspx

    Hope this reply is helpful to you.


    Regards,
