we had windows 3 windows 2012 Domain Contorllers with many window 7 and windows 10 clients
I have created 2 more domain controllers recently and notice no users are loging in to new one. Even local Users to these DCs are loging in to remote location Domain controllers. new DCs subnet is added in AD. How I can force users to logon local DCs ? is there any metrics I need to change OR How can I setup priority/weight in AD for these DCs to change logon priorities ?

You may try to add the new domain controllers on same site on "AD Sites and Services" where PC's are and Change the Workstations Primary and secondary DNS to new Servers.
new DCs are already added to same site & services with old DCs (currently users logging into) and computers are getting new DCs as DNSs by DHCP Servers already. All DCs are Global catalogs

Solution

Please run;

Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:%computername% >C:\dcdiag.log
repadmin /showrepl >C:\repl.txt
ipconfig /all > C:\dc1.txt
ipconfig /all > C:\dc2.txt
ipconfig /all > C:\dc3.txt
ipconfig /all > C:\dc4.txt

ipconfig /all > C:\dc5.txt
ipconfig /all > C:\problemworkstation.txt


then put unzipped text files up on OneDrive and share a link.
