Group Policy Snap-in

Good Morning Everyone,
     We currently have 2 sites belonging to the same domain. When I attempt to make changes to Group Policies from my site, the snap-in is painfully slow. We have a 768kbps SDSL link between the 2 sites.

When I browse Group Policies, will my snap-in focus on a domain controller on the other site? Is there a way for me to change focus to a DC in my site?

THanks!!

Elvis

the choice of the dc can be specified in the gpo editor > view (in menu line) > dc options
you must restart the active directory snappin

or you can also configure what dc to use using a gpo (that overwrites above setting)

Domain controller selection set through Group Policy
In addition to the DC Options command, there is also a Group Policy setting for domain controller selection. This is part of the System.adm Administrative Template that is loaded into Group Policy Object Editor by default. You can find this Group Policy setting in Group Policy Object Editor under User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy. You can double-click Group Policy domain controller selection in the details pane, and then click the appropriate setting in the list.

Thanks! - What is the impact of not selecting the default Ops. Master and PDC Emulator?

tks
the master will only be updated after the first replication (security gpo changes are replicated with priority directly)
when you need to update the ops master directly, then you must leave it as it is
