Recently at work, we have had some issues on a customer site with GPO’s. As we were on a tight schedule I wanted to force replication rather than wait for the normal replication cycle to happen.
It is really easy to force a replication, and this article will show you how.
The easiest method is to use the following command in an elevated PowerShell window.
|#changing PIXEL-DC01 to a name of the domain controller you want to push replication from.|
|Repadmin /syncall PIXEL-DC01 /APed|
What does /Aped mean?
e(nterprise, cross sites)
If for some reason you don’t want to use PowerShell you can always use the Active Directory Sites and Services console (dssite.msc).
From here you can select to either replicate from the selected DC or to the selected DC.
