Best way to link a RODC to a domain.local in a different office RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm setting up a RODC to deploy to a branch office in another country.

    I have successfully configured the RODC and replicated the settings internally.

    Our current domain structure consists of a single domain and is local eg. contoso.local

    When my RODC is not on the same network as my DC it cannot replicate.

    My question is this, what is the best way to allow my RODC to talk to my DC when they're in different offices.

    As our domain is .local my RODC cannot resolve it when out of our head office environment.

    My DC is running on SBS2008 and my RODC is running on Server 2008 R2 Standard.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
