Running an NLTEST /DCLIST:mydomain I get this result.

XXX-DC1.com [DS] site: Default-First-Site-Name
XXX-DC2.com [DS] site: Default-First-Site-Name
XXX-DC3.com [DS] site: Default-First-Site-Name

New to this, so I am trying to understand why each says Default-First-Site-Name.
Is this normal?

DC1 is a 2008R2, the rest are 2003sp2.

Default-First-Site-Name is the default site created when building a new forest
most places will rename to something more meaningful like the geographical location but seems it was not done there
so yes, it is normal

Thanks.    I saw discussions on renaming, now it makes sense why.   In our environment it is not necessary, so I will leave it status quo.

Thanks for the explanation.

This is normal but you can change it to more suitable names like if the DC is placed in London you can rename that to London,UK etc (more of a geographical names etc). likewise if you have multiple DC's as i can see in your question above you can create multiple site and name them accordingly and move the respective DC to respective site but again it all depends how you want it and it's ok to keep all in same default site.
