This is fine, but make sure the "Windows Firewall" service is running even if the firewall is actually disabled.

comment Identify applications that are configured to connect to a specific domain controller
Of course. Also beware of FSMO roles, DNS and other services that may be running on DCs (although they shouldn't).

@EvanAnderson, that can indeed happen if connections cannot be established to DCs in adjacent sites for long enough. And they can linger around even after those DCs are back online.

I instead took it as "I'm using a single site" (and its name does indeed look like no much work was made in ADS&S console); even if site link bridging was involved, AD should have by default created replication connections between DCs in adjacent sites, and would only have overriden this if all the DCs in San Francisco became not available for some reasons.
