How to limit the scope of Domain Controllers (DC) that QAS uses?
E.g.: There are 8 DCs that QAS queries. Three of those servers are heavily used and results in random slowness. You would like QAS to only use 5 of those servers.
1. Specify the domain controllers for your domain on the vastool join command line. To run vastool join while specifying the domain controllers, run the following as root at a shell prompt:
# /opt/quest/bin/vastool -u matt join example.com \
Where server1.example.com and server2.example.com are both domain controllers for the example.com domain.
Specify one or more domain controllers for the realm you are joining that are in the UNIX/Linux system's Active Directory Site.
2. Edit your vas.conf and set the following:
use-dns-srv = false
3. If joined previously the srv cache will need to be flushed.
Please run vastool flush srvinfo - which will update the servinfo to get rid of the other information stored.
