It's been over a year since this post. has an Updated AD Agent design/best practices doc been completed for v3.1? I could use it in discussions with my AD group (we have 114 DC's to integrate with in a single Domain)
+1 for jechaff's question: where is the updated UID agent best practice / design document? Our WAN links are suffering hard from the traffic to/from our PAN UID agent servers in our data centers and the remote domain controllers. It seems obvious after reading through these posts that the recommendation is to have a PAN UID agent server at each local site but I'd like to see some official documentation on the subject before we begin to deploy new vm servers everywhere.
As mentioned in my earlier post, you can try to tweak the timer values to lessen the impact on your WAN links. What we saw was a huge burst of activity when a DC is first integrated with the UIA. Once the initial burst is complete (depending on how large your DC logs are), then the queries pared down to a steady background chatter. We found the two minute interval to be acceptable but YMMV.
