One other thing. I noticed I have clients attempting to authenticate to 
DC's in other sites. I think I found the issue after reading this page


It's down at the moment so I had to read a cached version. It basically 
says to look at the registered SRV records in the site. Mine contained 
records for all the DC's in my forest. However the other two sites I 
have only display there corresponding SRV records( 2DC's in each site).  
I created those sites and subnets prior to joining the DC's.
