AD Login Handling

AD enabled workstations choose their login server by site and weight. 

The workstations know what site they are in (nltest /dsgetsite). So all the DCs should show up in ‘nslookup –q=SRV _ldap._tcp.athens._sites.dc._msdcs.ohio.edu’. You can also type ‘echo %logonserver%’  if you’re curious which one your workstation is using.
