Site tutorials


  • It is represented by Oval

  • It contain server and connected physically via some WAN lines

  • We can define replication from once every 15 minute (Minimum limit) to once every week i.e. 10080 minutes (Maximum limit)

  • We can specify time limit between which replication can occur lets say 7:00 pm to 7:00 am and can reduce load during business time.

  • Site can have multiple domain and 1 domain can have multiple sites.

  • Site link are transitive i.e. if A link B & B link C, A will automatically related to C


Creating Site

  • Start – Administrative Tool – Active directory Sites and Services

  • By default all DC server installed will be shown in “Default-First-Site-Name” – “Servers”. You can click ‘+’ sign and check

  • First rename the “Default-First-Site-name” to lets say “Mumbai”. Space can’t be used

  • Now right click “Site” and create “new site”, lets say “Delhi”, choose proper options.

  • Select Default site link

  • Now Select “Subnet” – Right Click – “new” – “subnet” enter IP address & Subnet Mask of “Mumbai” DC and choose “Mumbai” site.

  • Similarly enter IP address & subnet Mask of “Delhi” DC and choose “Delhi” site

  • Now we need to move DC to “Delhi” site. You can select DC – right click and choose MOVE, or you can directly drag DC to Delhi site.


Site Link – Transport Protocols. (IP or SMTP)

  • IP uses RPC over IP (Remote Procedure Call), which is highly reliable WAN line between two sites.

  • RPC over IP should be used when there are reliable, dedicated and fast connection between sites. Both replication DC must be available at time of replication. Communication is synchronous that means each transaction must be compete before next transaction.

  • SMTP – with SMTP as the transport, all replication traffic is converted to email messages that are sent between the site asynchronously. Because SMTP replication are asynchronous, both replication DC partner do not have to be available at the time of replication.

  • SMTP should be used when connections are unreliable or not always available. A Certificate Authority (CA) is required. Certificates from CA are used to digitally signed and encrypt the SMTP messages sent between sites.


Create Site Link between 2 sites & Schedule it

  • Start – All Program – Administrative Tool – Active Directory Sites and Services

  • Expand Sites container and then expand the Inter-site Transport container.

  • Choose IP or SMTP, Right click and choose New Site Link

  • Give name to site link for e.g. “Mumbai to Delhi Site Link”

  • Choose appropriate Sites in this site link.

  • Now double click on Site link and then Give. COST and Replicate every 180 min.

  • Click on “Change Schedule” and then select Time when Replication will be available.
