Domain controller on seperate site

I have one main network with 3DC's and another remote site with one DC (all part of the one AD). I have recently merged with another company and have a trust in place. They will be accessing resources off my network. When they logon and authenticate on my network for some reason they are being sent to the remote site DC as oppose to the main network DC's. I understand sites and services is the place to go (I think?) I have never set up this before but from my recollection I specify the IP ranges to be associated with the specific servers?

You'll want to associate specific SUBNETS to SITES.

In Sites and Services, drill down under Sites, then Subnets... and define subnets, and within the subnet, specify which site it is in.

(The domain controllers will use that information to determine which site they are in, so presumably the remote site subnets have already been defined.)

In ADS&S you can set a "cost" on the various links between subnets.  Set a higher cost on the link to the standalone DC and a lower cost on the link to the main network.  That should resolve your issue.
