I have a single domain/forest setup. I recently created a second site in active directory and added a domain controller to it. Both DC's are server 2003.
At the new site with the new DC, I run the command "echo %logonserver%" on a workstation, and it replies back with the old domain controller name. This leads me to believe that the workstations at the new site are authentication to the DC at the other site.
I want the workstations at the new site to authenticate to the new DC that is part of their site. How will I make this happen? I read some stuff saying that I would have to make the new DC a global catalog server, however, I also read some stuff saying that secondary global catalog servers are useless unless you have a multi-domain setup.
