I'd like to move a DC to another site in Sites and Services.  Once it is moved to another site, will the users that already have a session with the DC be affected?  The sites are well connected, so no communcation issues.  I'm interested in knowing whether or not this change would be seamless.

Should have no effect on connected users.

Whether you are physically moving the DC, or just logically moving it in AD, users should not have any issues since the sites are 'well-connected'.
