GC replication from FSMO Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Team,

    I need urgent help on AD replication. Current environment has 5 GC servers where one of the server "server1" has all the FSMO roles installed. I have to configure add one more GC server "Server6" which is not in direct communication with FSMO server. I can enable communication with Server1 which has FSMO roles installed for promoting server6 to AD but it will not be permanent. I want to understand if the communication is required from Server6 to Server1 only to promote AD or it requires in future as well? What will happen if Server6 is not in direct connection with server1? Server6 will communicate with server5 which is also a GC server for replication. 

    Kindly suggest.

    Yes, in future as well for replication to sync changes across all domain controllers.
