I currently have two Domain Controllers 192.168.2.50 and 192.168.2.52 and all users authenticate through these.  I would like to seperate off a group of computers that are on a separate subnet 192.168.10.X to authenticate to the new DC located at their site which is 192.168.10.10 .....   Whats the best way of going about this ....??

Thanks ...

Is there a DHCP server in that subnet?  That's a far better way to assign DNS servers to clients than by using a GPO.

I echo what DrDave242 said. DHCP is the efficient way to assign DNS servers. If for some reason, you are using static IP addresses, you may choose powershell way. Below articles should should help you in that context.

If your subnets/sites are set properly then your clients should get the local DC and not the WAN DC.

This feature is inbuilt in AD.
