  • Repadmin /replicate

    Hi,

    I am tyring to create a batch file that replicates all the DC's in our environment.

    We have a forest root domain and 1 child domain.

    I have no problem replicating the DC's that are in the same domain but cannot get the replication command to work when I have one Dc in one domain and the other DC in the other domain.

    Is their any specific syntax I have to use?

    I am an Enterprise Admin & Domain Admin in both domains

    Thanks

    Scott

    Re: Repadmin /replicate

    Well, first of all, are you talking File Replication or AD Data replication?

    If you're talking AD replication, this is done automatically and I would strongly dissuade you from attempting to muck about with this function.

      Hi StoneSlaughter,

      I am refering to AD replication.

      This is a simple procedure and I am only automating the process of
      'right clicking' on each servers NTDS settings because it is a tedious task.

      I am sure lots of system administrators do this ?????

      So can you provide any further insight to my problem please ??

      Thanks

      Scott

        Windows 2000 or 2003?
        However, i wouldn't recommend it by doing so.
        Why do you want to do this???

          No - absolutely not. If something I do needs to be replicated I wait the 15 minutes it takes to get it replicated via the automated system. Absolutely nothing is so important that it cannot wait 15 minutes.

            Guys,

            Appreciate the comments.

            I get the impression that this not best practice, so I will steer clear.

            It's ornic though, I picked this tip up off the Train Signal cbt's, which this forum
            recommends.

            But I suppose the old addage 'Don't believe everything you hear' comes to mind

            Thanks again

            Scott

              I think perhaps you should view the Train Signal CBT again and listen to what is said and the context in which it is said.
