Hello

Under the Organization Configuration or Server Configuration node, there is a "Modify Configuration Domain Controller" context menu to launch the Configuration Domain Controller dialog. This allows you to specify a domain controller to be used for AD read and write for organization or server configuration.
Can you make sure that DC2 is NOT present there.
