Q

Does MPLS have any special effect on AD?

I've not had any luck finding anyone who has deployed Active Directory on an MPLS network. Does MPLS have any special effect on AD? Is there any special approach we should take on setting up replication? Are there any known gotchas from this approach?
Thank you.

Hi Len,
Although I don?t know anyone doing this, I see no reason that Active Directory would not work over an MPLS network that is able to carry the traffic between the private addresses of the PCs and servers. Basically, if IP traffic is routable over the network, Active Directory should also work.
Best, Mark
