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:
- Tries to find a domain controller in the same site.
- 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.
- 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.
