What is the best way to control which Domain Controller a set of PC's
authenticate/get group policy from in Active Directory? I have a group
of PC's that rely on a specific policy to function, and they are
currently authenticating to a DC at a different site (over a point to
point connection). This is causing a loss of service at some times.

Also, I have new AD sites (subnets) which have no DC on it. How do I
tell these sites which Domain Controllers to authenticate/get group
policy from? There are currently two sites with DC's on them.

Thanks in advance,
nebj00la
