I have been working with 2008 Forests and customers moving towards this environment quite alot recently. Therefore I would like to bring your attention to a newly completed and updated guide which is now available for download;

The Read-Only Domain Controller (RODC) Branch Office Guide is now live on TechNet and the Download Center!

· TechNet: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd734758(WS.10).aspx

· Download Center: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=153714

The guide covers the major considerations around deploying RODC’s in Branch Office scenarios.  Specifically, the topics include:

· Branch Office Environment Characteristics

· Deciding Which Type of Domain Controller Meets the Needs of a Branch Office Location

· Updates to Windows Server 2003 Branch Office Guide Recommendations

· Planning/Deploying/Administering RODCs in Branch Offices

· Monitoring Your Branch Office Environment

 

I recommend this as your next Bed time Reading if you are looking to utilise  RODC in your Enterprise environment.
