AD Remote site logons


I have 2 sites in my environment. Both on the same network and both running Windows Server 2012. At this point both sites are about equal in size (300-400 users) but the remote site is growing. Both sites have DC's that are on the same domain.

I have noticed that users are authenticating to both DC's approximately evenly. Is there a way to make it so users at my remote site autheticate to their local DC and vice versa?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are your sites connected via VPN? If so, run a DCDIAG /test:DNS to see if you get any DCLocator errors. You may have an RDP issue due to a recent windows update problem.
