Windows 2003 Active Directory Domain Controller in Second Site

Hi

Ok so we have rolled out our first site today. So our main site and site2 which is the remote site are up and running. Just some strange things happening. When goto use GPMC from the remote site it takes absolutely ages for anything come up. And also if i create a logon script and attach it to a OU within AD it will not run at the remote site. If i look at gpresult it tells me that it ran but it never maps any drives

any ideas?

At the remote site, copy the login script locally and run it. What happens?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

what i really want to make sure here is that any gp''s that i create and link to an ou that user and computer accounts actually reside in the remote site get their gp's from the correct server ie the dc for that site and dont come over the wan link's back to main site to get their gp's as this would be a nightmare and really slow

cheers
