active directory sizing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I am a Technical engineer working IT security solution in Dubai for the last five years.

    Kindly suggest a sizing for the active directory for the windows 2008 server with currently 90000 users and with atleast changes happening 30 users added,deleted or modified every ONE hour and server is full 24hrs active and have two DC server.kindly find below the specs for the dc servers in the current setup.

    its in VMware environment

    DC-1

    2 * logical processor with 3.00GHz with one core — ONE DOMAIN AND 90,000 USERS

    DC-2

    2 * logical processor with 3.00GHz with one core — ONE DOMAIN AND 90,000 USERS.

    The issue we face here is we have supplied agent based solution for monitoring the changes in the AD

    when we run the check on the AD server the CPU utilization going above 90% which is not acceptable for the client.from the many forum search i found that their resources supplied for the AD is well below the spec suggested by the Microsoft.
    if you could suggest an approximate H/W spec need for the above servers i will be thankful to you.

    regards

    Davies
