Within powershell – How can I determine which Active Directory Domain Controller is being polled for information?
for example C:> get-aduser christopher.ellis

Enabled : True
GivenName : Christopher

Can I direct powershell to query a specific Domain controller? If so – how?

To pick one you can use the Server parameter:
[quote]The default value for the Server parameter is determined by one of the following methods in the order that they are listed:
-By using Server value from objects passed through the pipeline.
-By using the server information associated with the Active Directory PowerShell provider drive, when running under that drive.
-By using the domain of the computer running Powershell.
The following example shows how to specify a full qualified domain name as the parameter value.
Directory server values:
Fully qualified directory server name
Fully qualified directory server name and port

I don't know how you'd identify which server you're using by default though.
