  • Hi,

    You can create connection object manually between domain controller, but It's recommended to let this task to KCC to create them automatically, in this case you need to create site link between the two AD sites on Sites and services active directory wizard.

  • Is this two site from different Domain? then you can't replicate, you have to create a trust between domains

    If sites are from same Domain then create a site-link that will automatically create connection object
