How can I point the "Active Directory Users and Computers.mmc" to default to a specific Domain Controller.

Hi,

How can I point the "Active Directory Users and Computers.mmc" to default to a specific Domain Controller, without choosing it manually with "Connect to Domain Controller..."?  We have 3 DC in different countries and it can take up to 1 minute to open the console.

Thank you.
