Any reason you woudnt consider using AD Sites to create Boundary ranges?
Because historically AD team is not very famous for managing AD site IP details. There is no technical reason I guess.
Also when you’re travelling with a laptop, AD sites wouldn’t care where you are… if you have multiple locations around the world with multiple DPs it will keep going to where the AD Site is not where the physical laptop is currently located
How can i exclude IP’s from a Boundary ?
