Update replication settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Experts,

    Assuming I have two sites i.e. Site A and Site B...Site A has the primary domain controller with the all the FSMO roles while Site B has a domain Controller that replicates from the Site A domain Controller.

    Eventually, I want to make Site B DC the primary DC and move all the FSMO roles across to it. Do need I update the replication settings and make Site A DC to replicate from Site B DC or  no modification to the replication settings is required?

  • In general I'd check that domain replication and health (repadmin /dcdiag) are 100% before making changes. No changes needed to replication. Only change should be to windows time services. Change new PDC to use an NTP source and other one to use NT5DS source.
