              by Arman Obosyan 14. June 2012 09:43

              The Active Directory Replication Status Tool (ADREPLSTATUS) analyzes the replication status for domain controllers in an Active Directory domain or forest.

              ADREPLSTATUS displays data in a format that is similar to REPADMIN /SHOWREPL * /CSV imported into Excel but with significant enhancements. Specific capabilities for this tool include:

              • Expose Active Directory replication errors occurring in a domain or forest.
              • Prioritize errors that need to be resolved in order to avoid the creation of lingering objects in Active Directory forests.
              • Help administrators and support professionals resolve replication errors by linking to Active Directory replication troubleshooting content on Microsoft TechNet.
              • Allow replication data to be exported to source or destination domain administrators or support professionals for offline analysis.
