AD replication tutorials

There are 2 type of site replication. 1) INTRASITE and 2) INTERSITE



is site replication with in site. A site may have more than one DC. When any modification is made to one DC. The changes occurred to one DC will be notified to other DCs. When other DCs are ready it will poll replication and then update their information. Usually this replication is fast as it is within LAN that is connected using fast NIC cards.



is site replication between multiple sites. As it is traveling at less then LAN speed, so one have to see that the information moves around WAN line is smaller as compare to LAN. When data which has to move over other server if it is more than 50 KB then it is COMPRESSED. Replication DC do not notify changes made to other DC. They will poll only at the schedule time, the default time is once every 15 min, max time limit is 10080 minutes,.

For INTERSITE replication it use KCC (Knowledge Consistency Checker) which optimize the replication process. The KCC automatically creates connections between DC and it use one of 2 protocol i.e. IP or SMTP
