Q

How can I tell which AD domain controller my users log in to?

How can I tell which AD domain controller my users log in to? I have three sites: site A has two DCs, site B has one DC and site C has one dc. I know PCs in each site should be contacting the DCs in their respective sites, but what about the site that has two DCs?
A quick way to check is on the workstation itself open a command prompt and look at the variable LOGONSEVER. Just type SET LOGONSERVER and it will display the information.
