Is it possible to manually set a user's PC to login to Active Directory on a specific AD server?

One of our users is having a hard time logging into Outlook and it's because she's logging into her PC and authenticating though a particular AD server which is a VM that's running very slow because of SAN issues.  I would like for her to log into one of our physical AD servers which is not connected to the SAN.  Is is possible to tell her computer which AD server to log into?

AD - Windows 2003
Windows Server 2003Active Directory

I agree it's a bad idea.  We have 3 physical AD servers that are not attached to the SAN.  They thought it was a "brilliant" idea to also have a AD server on a VM.

I'll make the suggestion to my superiors that they migrate the roles to the physical AD servers and shut the VM AD off.  But they probably won't go for it.

Thanks for the quick response.
