When we make changes and need to force an immediate synchronization, some significant annoyances have hindered us. The primary problem is that our DirSync server is pulling directory information from a tertiary DC that can be as much as half an hour out of date... sometimes. Other days it is using an appropriate DC. Since it is inconsistent we cannot use manual replication as a consistent workaround.
How can I configure the DirSync process to use a specific DC (or specific set of DCs) rather than allowing it to choose on its own? Barring that, is there a way to configure the entire computer to use a custom list of DCs (since the DirSync process inherits, I believe, the DC the server is using).
