We are a county school district, with 30 schools scattered over a large area. They are connected to each by a routed 10 meg connection. At present we are running nw6.5 and Zen 7, all the schools are in the same tree, the tree is broken down into school containers, with each school holding the master replica of its’ container.
Now that ZCM has its’ own database and it is not replicated. Is it better to have one zone and a primary server in a central location and have all remote site look to it for data, or have each school build in it’s own zone.
Does every workstation logging into zen have to connect to the primary server in the remote location?
How much traffic are we talking about, with around 6000 workstations, and that number keeps going up?

I guess I need some guidance .
