How to specify a particular domain controller to be used for cache building in Control Compliance Suite 11.0.

Resolution

The Security Content Update (SCU) 2013-1 contains the following enhancements:

In a multiple domain controller environment, you can now specify a particular domain controller to be used for cache building. To specify a domain controller, add the following information in the ConfigurationSettings.xml file that is located at <CCS_install_directory>\DPS\control\Windows:

<PlatformSetting>
<Key>DCForCacheToUse</Key>
<Value><![CDATA[DomainName:DomainControllerName;Domain1:DomianController1]]></Value>
</PlatformSetting>

You must specify only one domain controller for a domain. You can provide either the host name, IP address, or FQDN of the domain controller.

NOTE: In some situations IP address does not work so it is recommended to use the FQDN of the Domain Controller.

Ensure that  the domain controller you provide gets resolved from the CCS Manager computer. If the domain controller specified in the  configurationSettings.xml  file is not reachable, then CCS uses any other available domain controller on the network, to build or refresh the cache.
