dfs client reporting to the wrong DC

We have 1 domain with 3 sites.  1 dfs root replicated with many links.  Some links are to shares that are replicated and some are not.  We are having a problem with a client that reports to the wrong site and therefore is seeing the wrong version of the unreplicated shares.  We can't find any errors in the logs of either the servers or the client.  Is there a way that I could force this client to report to the correct location?

You can force the DFS client cache to be cleared by running dfsutil /PktFlush from the client server.  The dfsutil.exe is a tool that is available in the Windows Server 2003 /support/tools folder of the installation CD.  I simply copy that file to C:\Windows\System32 and I can run dfsutil from the command prompt.

When you say to run it on the client server, do you mean the server hosting the dfs root or the windows xp client that is having the problem?
