A question about replica best practices.

We have twenty geographically separated locations. Each site has a Netware 6.5 server. Each site is in its own container. The District office also has a Netware 6.5 server.

Each GSU's server has a R/W replica of its own container.

The DSMaster server at the District office has a master replica specifically of each container.

The DSMaster server also has a master replica at the highest level container. Is this needed or recommended?

None of the documentation I've found is exactly clear.

Thanks in advance for any help!
