wins and login scripts

i have an office in europe and one in US.  US is HQ (80 users) and europe is a remote site with about 10 users.
nt 2003 domain--mixed mode AD

occasionally login scripts are being run on a in europe rather than the HQ.  it seems the server there also wins the browser election too.  i think both of these events are slowing down the network in US.

how can i...
1. find out which master browser and logon server are being used on a client
2. specify which office (subnet) should use which servers for logon scripts and browser servers

1. there's a resource kit tool called browmon.exe (Browser Monitor) that will tell you who your Master Browser is. For the login server, look in the registry: HKeyCurrentUser\Volatile Environment\Logon Server = ??

2. In your active directory, you need to define 'Sites'. A Site is associated with an IP subnet address. Your client will always attempt to login with a server from it's own site before using one from another site.
For login scripts, the login script can be assigned in Group Policy on an OU. Make sure that the login script for the US OU is mapping to US servers, and ditto for the european OU (assuming they exist).
