Remove Active Directory Sites Connection

If I have 4 sites, connected over VPNs as such:

Site A connects to Site B, Site C, Site D
Site B connects to Site A, Site C
Site C connects to Site A, Site B
Site D connects to Site A

Each site has one domain controller marked as a GC, except A which has two DCs.

How do I keep Site D from making connections in Active Directory Sites and Services to Sites B and C and vice versa? The connections come back even after I delete them and the event log gets spammed with errors and warnings because Sites B and C are trying to contact Site D when they have no connection to it.

check this options

Inter-Site Transport > Properties > Do you have check on Bridge All Site Links [You need to disable this]
On Site Link > Do you have it configured correctly, in terms of Site A - Site B - Site C, are they connecting to what they are suppose to interms of physical connectivity

check for any misconfiguration for example site b is connecting to site d

Ahhh, I had the Bridge All Site Links disabled but I only had the one Site link. I broke it down into two, one connecting the first three sites and one connecting the central site to the standalone site. Looks to be working.

Thanks!
