Active Directory Users and Comptuers taking a long time to open up.

Hopefully this will be an easy one.  I use AD users and Computers on a regular basis.  Sometimes when I open it up it takes forever.  The reason it takes so long is that it connects to a DC that is at a remote site.  Once open I can connect to the local DC and it works great.  Is there a way to set it up so that Users and Computers always uses the same DC?

Yup,

Open AD users and computers,
right click the Root of the tree (Active Directory Users and Computers [some DC]
Select Connect to Domain Controller
Select the DC you want and it should always go to that DC for now on.

hope that helps

I tried this and it will connect to a different server everytime.  When it does take forever to open up, I can always switch servers and it works fine.  I have bigger fish to fry now so you get the points.  Thanks for the time and effort.
