DFSR & AD Site Problem?

We have a new site w/ a file server & a separate DC.  DFSR is not working on the new file server.  I ran a replication group health check -- no errors but I noticed the new/problem server was listed in the wrong site.  I check the DFS Management MMC and the replication connections tab shows the new server & site correctly.

I checked AD Sites and Services and DC for the new site is correct.  I checked the subnet and it is associated w/ the correct site.  I checked AD Users and Computers and the new file server is in the correct OU.  When I run nltest /server:<FileServer> /DsGetSite the result shows the server is associated w/ the wrong site.  If I run nltest /dsgetdc:<domain> the "DC site" is wrong but "Our Site" is correct.

I also checked the new file server logonserver and it is authenticating at the PDC rather than the local DC.  Ran logonserver on a local workstation and it is using the local DC.

To summarize, Site 1 (PDC), Site 2 (existing site) and Site 3 (new site) are setup for DFSR.  Site 1 & 2 replicate fine.  Site 3 not replicating.  In fact, the DfsrPrivate folder was not created.  Health check Server Details shows Site 3 file server in Site 1 though MMC shows the site correctly in Site 3.  Other command line tests show the Site 3 file server is using the Site 1 DC (PDC) and is in the wrong "DC Site."

Help please.

Never mind.  It was a problem w/ GP setting the site location when the server was located elsewhere but not setting it at the new site!  Thanks though.

First I'd check the AD health

Run a dcdiag /e /v > dcdiag.txt

on the DC in site 3 and check the results or attach it here (remove/obfuscate company relevant information)

Site3 is the problem site.  The Site2 "partial client site mapping" issue has to do w/ IPv6 addresses but not sure how to add a subnet to Sites and Services for IPv6.  Thanks for your help!

Ok...I really didn't mean to give myself points.  This was just an oversight that I tracked down.
