One Domain- 2 Subnets



I'm building a Win200 environment.

One Active directory domain with two subnets. SubnetA and

Each subnet will have 2 domian controllers for resilience
hosting DNS AD Integrated zones. Forward and Reverse.

Do I need to create a reverse Lookup Ad Integrated zones
for each subnet...on one DNS server?
DNS traffic will be allowed to flow and routing also
Will Active Directory information get replicated or do I
need to create sites...? they actually will be in the same

Please advise

You don't necessarily have to create sites or reverse zone to get Active
Directory to work. Creating sites may provide an advantage to you depending
on whether there's a slow link connecting each segment but if they're in the
same building it's likely unnecessary.
