multiple Domain authenication issue
Posted on 2008-06-15
Hi - Ive got one annoying problem.
We are a small company of about 200. Offices with server 2003 r2 domain controllers in HK, NY and London. I run the HK office - we have 2 domain controllers here, one as fail over. We have a local excahnge server here too. In the weekend we had a sceduled MPLS outage.
But i noticed I couldnt log on when the outage happended. My PC was really unresponsive. Anyway, after the link came back up I started take ting note of the log in script, The HK PC's are authenticating to the London DC - when the link came back up there was no issie at all.
DC promo was run on the HK domain servers.
What would cause this? I alweays thought that PCs would try to connect to the closest domain - the PC's and DC in HK are on the same subnet.
