Fix Recommendation

2. Ensure IPSec and other communications and security configurations for the management and replication of the RODC uses the minimum required Group Policy Objects (GPOs) to provide the required functionality.

3. Replicate only the information needed to provide the functionality required. If full replication of all directory data is not needed, then replicated selective ID and authentication information as needed to the RODC.

4. Include an inspection of the RODC server in the DMZ when inspection for least privilege.
