adclient.next.closest.site.lookup.enabled

The adclient.next.closest.site.lookup.enabled configuration parameter specifies whether or not the Microsoft "Try Next Closest Site" is enabled. If it is enabled, the agent locates a domain controller according to the following order:

  1. Tries to find a domain controller in the same site.
  2. If there isn't a domain controller in the same site, the agent tries to find a domain controller in the next closest site.
    A site is closer if it has a lower site-link cost than another site with a higher site-link cost.
  3. If no domain controller is available in the next closest site, the agent tries to find a domain controller in the domain.

By default, this parameter is set to false.

For example: adclient.next.closest.site.lookup.enabled:false.
