Active Directory Sites and Services and user authentication

We have 2 sites in our AD Domain.  In Sites and Services have 2 sites setup.   Site A has 1 domain controller and has network 10.1.10.0/24, GC activated.
Site B has 1 domain controller  and has network 192.168.37.0/24 , GC activated
Users who authenticate at Site B lose domain controller.  Would these users from Site B go to Site A for Authentication?

Are they using static IPs or would they get a new IP (DHCP) when the go to the new site.

Thanks

Assuming that the client devices in site B are able to commuincate with DNS (i.e. the DNS client is configured and there is network connectivity) and DNS has all the correct records published for the DC in site A, then yes.

Are there things that can be misconfigured to prevent that from happening seamlessly - yes...

Alastair.
