Problem: Unreliability of %LOGONSERVER%

On VPN connected client, I start to check why %LOGONSERVER% variable report a not correct DC. What I suspect is that this variable is updated only at logon session. Again on Windows 7, if you logon with cached credential (no DC reachable), this variable report the last DC your machine used on past.

To check che current DC your clients is using better to use nltest:

nltest /sc_query:mydomain.local
