I manage one site on a Windows 2008 domain. I have one server for this site which is the DNS server for the site and which I use to write group policies for my site. The main domain controller for the domain is in another site, in another building. We have separate IP subnets, and are connected by a rather long Cat 6 cable. The computers in my site can log on to the network even if the main domain controller is down, but if it is down they do not download group policies. Is there a way that I can force the computers in my site to download group policies from the server in this site?
Software/Hardware used: Windows 2008 server, Windows XP sp3
