Logon Server

I just build a new windows 2008 RODC in the remote side. I want local people to log in locally to that server so the logon scripts goes from that server. I noticed that when I type from one of the machines set logonserver = it shows another server in AD not the local one. How I do force so all local users are logged in to the 2008 RODC machine

    Have you setup your sites with the associated subnets for the correct sites.  If you did that then clients should be using a DC in their local site first.  If a DC is not available in the local site then they use a box outside their site.

    As said you must set up at least one subnet for each site and then assicate that subnet with the site object. Clients will then prefer to authenticate with the DC in their own site. - its as well to have a DNS server with global in each site as well and make sure clients point to the DNS server in their own site as the preferred DNS server - that way you get less cross-site logon traffic.
