- A location in a network holding Active Directory servers. A site is defined as one or more well connected TCP/IP subnets. Well-connected means that network connectivity is highly reliable and fast (LAN speeds, 10 MM bits-per-second or greater). Sites play a major role in the Active Directory replication service, which differentiates between replication using a local network connection (intra-site replication) and replication over a slower wide area network (WAN) link (inter-site replication). Administrators use the Active Directory Sites and Services Manager snap-in to administer replication topology for both intra- and inter-site replication.
