SYSVOL & Atribute User Replication when DC is Off on Site Link Bridge RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have this AD hierchary:

    Site Link1: Site0 - Site1    Site Link2: Site1 - Site2    (These 2 site links have cost 100 and Replication Interval 15)

    Site Link Bridge: Site Link1 + Site Link2

    Site 0 have 4 DCs. Site 1 and Site 2 have a DC. FSMO roles are on Site 0. KCC and Bridge are enabled

    When DC on Site1 is off, SYSVOL changes on Site 0 are replicated to Site2, but Atribute User changes are not replicated to Site2

    How long KCC takes to generate an object beetween Site0 and Site2?? I can't see it...

  • There doesn't necessarily ever have to have a bridge between 0 - 2.  A DC in site 0 can replicate to site 1 and then the DC in site 1 can replicate to 2.

    If there is network connectivity between 0 and 2 (Which it doesn't sound like there is) I would suggest you create a link between them, otherwise you can run diagnostics if you are at all concerned about any errors that might be in this domain.

  • Expanding on what Paul said about no physical network connectivity between Site1 and Site2, then in adition to creating specific site links, I would also recommend disabling BASL (Bridge All Site Links) so the KCC and ISTG can work together to create the proper topology.
