force to another DC

Hi Experts,

I have to force another DC to use for auth.
Because now we use the DC in Germany from Singapore.
We have other DCs which are more near located.

I have checked this : nltest /dsgetdc:domain.com
In the registry I have seen a dynamic sitename.

How to changed this and force another DC ?

Your AD sites and their associated subnets are almost certainly not configured correctly if your users are being authenticated by a DC on another continent when there are local DCs available. That's where I would look first.

In AD Sites and Services, make sure you've got site objects for every site that contains a DC and that the appropriate DCs are in those sites. Then make sure there are subnet objects for every IP range in your environment and that each subnet is linked to the correct site. Those subnet objects are the mechanism AD uses to determine which site your member servers and clients are in.
