A great command built-in to Server 2008 Domain Controllers (DC’s). Try the following to force replication with other DC’s.
REM Repadmin options: /A = all naming contexts, REM ... /d = distinguished names (vs GUID's) REM ... /e = every site in enterprise, /P = push (vs default pull) REM Pull updates from remote DC's repadmin /syncall /A /e /d REM Push updates to remote DC's repadmin /syncall /A /e /d /P repadmin /replsummary repadmin /showrepl
Just a note from some recent AD work. Sometimes you don’t want to wait for replication to happen.
