Active Directory replication is a critical process that ensures all domain controllers have the most up-to-date information about objects and attributes in the Active Directory database. However, there are situations quite a few situations when you need to kick off the replication manually, such as:
- Troubleshooting a Group Policy Objects
- It is the middle of the night and you want to go to bed
- When you’re not sure replication is ever going to work on its own
- You have just tried something new and want to see if it is even going to work
- You slapped in a fix in the middle of the day without asking and need to make sure it isn’t going to blow anything up when the rest of the org gets it
In these cases, the ability to force Active Directory replication becomes essential. In our experience, this same command works with all version of Windows Server and all functional levels of active directory, so enjoy!
From command line (as administrator):
repadmin /syncall /AePdq
