Group policy with multiple DCs

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hi All,

We have multiple DCs in the environment - this is across the nation from city to city.

Lets say..

We have 2 DCs in each state (VIC, NSW, and QLD).
We have group policies set up and we hope that it replicates the group policy across all DCs.
Let's put Sydney as an example - when user logs on, pulls information from the DC along with the policy. Ran the command gpresult and shows different DC server (computer settings - server1 and user settings - server2). And sometimes it would show server1 or server2 for both computer and user settings.

Can someone hear verify that this is normal? Or is there a way to pick up one DC?
