Bringing up AD in our remote plants and I want to make sure I understand the
Subnet portion.
Is it as simple as entering the IP and Subnet mask we user per location?

Once I create sites and associate subnets to the site do I need to also
associate a subnet with the main site (default)?

You need to have a Site, Site Link and Subnet.

You need to assign subnet to your local site. Not the main site. Site link
is between your main site and remote site.

Every ip subnet should be associated with a site within your enterprise. If
not a user is routed back to the default site. This can be a real problem
if a user is at a site with a slow link and they have a local dc yet
improper configuration sends the user back to the default site.

So you need to create your sites and site links for the network topology so
Active Directory can then run the Knowledge Consistency Checker (KCC) for
intrasite connection as well as the InterSite Topology Generator (ISTG) for
intersite connection. Once defined each subnet then needs to be associated
with a a site for the best connection to the site (Really best connection to
a DC).

Look at Meinolf's link, this is a best practice that will guide you through
the setup for your site questions.
