One network with five VLANs

I need to set up a company network with five VLANS configured. The hosts in those VLANs are spread across multiple geographical locations. Please tell me how this can be done.

Separate the forest from the trees. I'm presuming you're running Windows 2003 and have one domain.
  • Are the organization units concurrent with the projected VLANs?
  • Is the main domain controller at the home office or located elsewhere for the center of your network?
  • Did your network map get adjusted to reflect bandwidth realities?
  • Are the VLANs each in a separate geographical location covering the hosts at that site, OR are the VLANS applied departmently with hosts at multiple sites?
  • Have you read the Microsoft white paper Deploying Active Directory for Branch Office Environments?
