ds: properly changing the srv priority for your domain controllers...

follow this kb article and note the special instructions for windows server 2003.  it specifies "to configure windows server 2003-based domain controllers, use the net logon service group policy "priority set in the domain controller locator dns srv records". 

  • launch the local policy editor by using gpedit.msc
  • drop down administrative templates
  • navigate to system/net logon/dc locator dns records
  • enable the setting "priority set in the dc locator dns srv records"
  • adjust priority to proper value
