Setting a preferred domain controller

Preferred domain controllers are used when requesting resources from Active Directory®. Normally, Active Directory assigns you the closest domain controller. You can use this feature to specify a domain controller to be used when a domain controller has not already been specified.

You can select to verify if a preferred domain controller is offline before use. If the preferred domain controller is offline, you can choose to use the primary domain controller (PDC) of the domain or allow Active Directory to select a domain controller. The offline preferred domain controller is recorded in the server log.
