How to let new domain controller authenticate user

I have 1 domain controller windows 2003 in my office and I have implemented  additional 1 domain controller on remote site. New site for remote site was created already in active directory.  All PC in remote site have already joined to our offices domain. To see if new domain controller works fine, I set DNS server IP address of new domain controller in a client PC on remote site. After restart thePC  and then login with domain user correctly.  And see " echo %logonserver% " but it still shows existing domain controller name. Is this normal behavior?
( I expected the new domain controller name as a result of  " echo %logonserver% ")

You probably did not set up Subet. You have to create Subnet and assign it into particules Site where this new DC is located. To do that, you need to use Active Directory Sites and Services console.

You need to do two things mainly (if you have not done yet)

1)  Move the Domain Controller to the proper site using "dssite.msc"
2) as mentioned by "iSiek", create a subnet and associte it to the new site.

Subnet was created and linked to the new site already. That is why I expected remote site user will be authenticated by new domain controller. Any idea?
