With respect to the above, I was curious as to everyone's thoughts on the placement of the 3 Domain Based FSMO roles.

I have read various Microsoft articles which mentions that this is a per set-up kind of answer in that you can mix and match (so long as the GC is seperate from the Infrastructure master) as well the Microsoft "Active Directory Operations Guide Part I: Active Directory Operations Version 1.5" which states clearly on page 64 "Place the three domain-level roles on the same domain controller." I fully appreciate that there is no one definative answer to this, but I am curious to see how this has been applied elsewhere.

On a similar topic, any thoughts on the following would be appreciated:

1 Forest with 3 domains - A.COM, B.A.COM and C.B.A.COM.
C.B.A.COM has around 50 servers and is presently running 4 DC's. A suggestion has been to make every DC in this domain and others GC's!!! I am somewhat sceptical given the potential replication issues. Other opinions would be appreciated!

Cheers!
