To edit the replication schedule or bandwidth for a replication group or connection, or to force replication with a specific member of a replication group, use the following procedures.

To edit the replication schedule and bandwidth

Configuration changes are not applied immediately to all members. The new configuration must be replicated to all domain controllers, and each member in the replication group must poll its closest domain controller to obtain the changes. The amount of time this takes depends on AD DS replication latency and the long polling interval (60 minutes) on each member. To poll immediately for configuration changes, open a command prompt window and then type the following command once for each member of the replication group: dfsrdiag.exe PollAD /Member:DOMAIN\Server1.

To force replication immediately
  1. In the console tree, under the Replication node, select the appropriate replication group.

  2. Click the Connections tab.

  3. Right-click the member you want to use to replicate, and then click Replicate Now.
