How to ensure users authenticate to a particular domain controller
Posted on 2011-05-06
At our HQ we have two domain controllers both are setup with domain.com (domain = insert company name). We have a branch site that also has a domain controller with the same domain.com so we see users at our HQ authenticate using the domain controller at our branch site. Obviously this isn't good because it consumes bandwidth on our WAN. What is the best way to keep authentication local to an office, so HQ authenticates to the HQ domain controller and branch office authenticates to the branch office domain controller.
