Verify lowest cost ordering method working in DFS

I have DFS enabled and drives mapping to local file servers based on lowest cost ordering method.  I have one office complaining of slow network navigation, navigating network drives, opening closing files, etc...  All other offices are not having this issue.  Is there a way to verify that DFS is mapping their drives correctly to their local file server an not another file server across the WAN?

1. How is the dfs name configured?
2. Is the issue on 1 specific share or across everything served by dfs?
3. Have you tested against a non-dfs supported share?
4. Have you tested the INDY to GR latency & bandwidth?
--- check out Sysinternals PSPING to test both items.

Sorry for all the questions, but best to test the easy stuff first.

First a few questions:

1. What does your AD Inter-site Transport setup look like?
2. Also, what is the connection bandwidth between sites?

Here is a screenshot of the Inter-site transport.  I can go into further detail if you need.

Inter-Site
Bandwidth is a 4.5mb MPLS circuit.
