DNS SRV record weight VS Sites & Services Link Cost?

Discussion in 'DNS Server' started by Claude Lachapelle, May 1, 2007.

  1. Since we have DCs in different sites, I would like to confirm that clients is
    locating SRV record using Sites & Services Link Cost? Correct me if I'm
    wrong, but we want to avoid having a workstations from a site authenticating
    to a remote site!?

    DNS SRV record weight have nothing to do with site, only with domain...

  2. In
    One simple method is, on the client, you can check to see which DC
    authenticated it by running in a command prompt:

    set logonserver

    One of the DCs in the client site, provided your Sites are setup properly,
    should show up.
