Ldap against multiple Windows ADS servers


We have three Windows ADS servers on three separate networks all connected to each other with a VPN tunnel.

Our is our master ldap server and autheticating against it works. The problem that we are facing is that if we configure the Linux (CentOS) servers to point to the ldap authentication against the server, it stats hanging and does not lookup any users which are in the server. So if the ADS server goes down we have no failover which causes problems with our Linux servers. I have enabled the Global catalog for both the site02 and site03 servers but that has not helped. Both the site02 and site03 servers are under the forrest if that helps. Can anyone help out as to where the problem might be?
