  • Hi elay.gb,

    Site links represent the flow of replication between sites. You can manage intersite replication by configuring site properties: over what time periods replication can occur, how often replication occurs within a certain time period, and the preferred routes between two sites.

    To check Site link object, you may simply check and configure it by using Active Directory Sites and Services snap-in.

    If there is any connection failure, you may check it by using Repadmin.exe tool.

  • Hi ,

     

    Thanks for posting here.

     

    If you are referring the network connectivity between sites, I think using Ping utility is the simplest way.

    Meanwhile, we also suggest using SNMP to monitor the connectivity :

    Thanks.
