Troubleshooting AD sites

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
My Sites Configuration:

Site HQ  (Subnet 1)
I have 2 Domain Controllers (DC1 and DC2) in the HQ site configured with IPs from subnet 1

I have a Router in between the 2 sites

Site Sat (Subnet 2)
I have 1 Domain Controller (DC3) in the Sat site configured with an IP from subnet 2. I also have a client configured with an IP from subnet 2 on the same side of the Router as DC3.

Every time I login the client on Subnet 2 I run set logonserver from the CMD prompt and it says it’s still authenticating to DC1.

I thought this configuration in AD sites and services was supposed to prevent this problem? Any idea what I’m doing wrong here?
