The dc_config.txt file
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
DC Agent works by identifying domain controllers in the network, and then retrieving user logon session information from those domain controllers. By default, the agent automatically verifies existing domain controllers and detects new domains or domain controllers added to the network.

For information about configuring DC Agent to retrieve logon events and setting the discovery interval, see Configuring DC Agent.
DC Agent stores domain and domain controller information in a file called dc_config.txt. Edit the file to change which domain controllers DC Agent polls:
1.
Go to the bin directory (by default, C:\Program Files\Websense\Web Security\bin) on the DC Agent machine.
2.
Make a backup copy of the dc_config.txt file in another location.
3.
Open the original dc_config.txt file in a text editor (like Notepad).

[WEST_DOMAIN]
dcWEST1.forcepoint.com=on
dcWEST2.forcepoint.com=on
[EAST_DOMAIN]
dcEAST1.forcepoint.com=on
dcEAST2.forcepoint.com=on
5.
dcEAST2.forcepoint.com=off

If DC Agent's automatic domain discovery has detected a domain controller that should not be used to identify users, set the entry to off, rather than removing it. Otherwise, the next discovery process will re-add the controller.
