Yes, we have 10 servers per site.  All servers in 1 zone due to the fact we
have gig links.  Good idea...  I may look at using 1 physical server per
site as ZDC.  Will look at limiting connections to perhaps 20 users to
ensure they are not starved..  What are the implications from a ZDC
perspective if the servers are busy whilst requests are coming thru?  Will
Citrix connections be slower?

Thanks for the great suggestion
