Logon Preferance to Domain Controllers

We have SiteA in which we have 2 windows 2003 domain controllers which are also Global catalog servers. The subnet assigned for serverA is 192.168.2.0 and for serverB the Subnet is 192.168.10.0. When a user from Subnet 192.168.10.0 logs on he either logs on to ServerA or ServerB (Randomly). Can I set a Preferance for logging on to the DC's.

this is all automated by windows, let it handle it all, either that or assign subnets to sites and services

if you have two subnets, you need to setup a subnet in AD sites and services. You will need to also make one of the servers a bridgehead server. Servers will login clients that are most local to them first, then another server if not advailable

BRIDGEHEADS are defined for optimal AD replication. Clients logon to the GLOBAL CATALOG closest to them. As Jay said, all you have to do is define subnets in sites and services, and make sure both DCs are GCs.
