Synchronising to wrong server

We have DFS configured on our head office network. We have replication between our sydney AD and UK AD. One of our users travels alot between each office. He has just come back and his laptop keeps trying to sync with the UK server. The DFS root is We he pings that root it shows ip of which is our SYD server, which is great, but when he relogs onto our network, it tries to sync to the UK server again and the whole thing takes approx 10 minutes, where it times out and then the system recreates a new profile for him locally. All the DFS links and shares do not come automatically as they do for everyone else.

What to do I need to do to get his laptop to sync to our local SYD head office?

It sounds to me you don't have Site and Services setup.  DFS referrals use site awareness to properly direct clients.  Load the AD Sites and Services MMC and configure (if needed) sites for both the UK and Sydney offices.  Then ensure the subnets are defined for the Sydney and UK sites, then ensure you have them assigned to the respective sites.  You may need to drag and drop the DCs to the respective Servers container under each site.

Hi Pber,

I do have sites and services configured with all the subnets created. All our other users get to the correct referal, which is to here to here in the sydney office. It seems to be this ONE user only. Is there anything locally on the PC that I can check out?
