Active Directory replication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In our company we have one domain and two active directory sites each site have two domain controllers. But the inter-site replication interval in every 180 minutes. Every day I am creating one or two new users from one site but the user is in another site. They are not able to login becasuse of this replication time. So everytime I am forcing replication manually.  What is the best practice for normal inter-site replication interval time?   We have around 1000 users in our domain.

    Thanks in advance.

  • I doubt you will find a best practice, it depends on your needs and your infrastructure. I personally do 15 minutes between sites.

    This is Exchange server forum, AD replication related question is recommended to posted in AD forum. Your understanding would be appreciated.

    Just for your reference, a delay of AD replication is by design. It is best to let your users know it so that users are accustomed to a acceptable delay.
