how do you configure a preferred bridgehead server...

Hello guys and as always, thank you for your time and expertise.  Here's my scenario today:  I know that the KCC designates a domain controller as the bridgehead server in a site with multiple domain controllers.  However, and here's my question, in a single domain controller site, when I right click on the domain controller object under the servers container in sites and services,  should I see IP listed under preferred bridgehead servers.  I thought you had to configure a preferred bridgehead server manually and I'm seeing this a lot in our sites with single or multiploe domain controllers, and I know designating a preferred bridgehead server is a problem in a site with multiple domain controllers if the preferred bridgehead server goes down and you don't have another configured.  Anyway, does the transport have to be added manually under preferred bridgehead servers or is the KCC doing this and this is just indicating this is my bridgehead server for the site.  Sorry for rambling and I appreciate your time and input.

In addition to the question above, in a site with multiple domain controllers is there a way to tell which server is the bridghead server other than knowing which one was installed first in the site.  Is there an identifier anywhere.  Thanks as always.
