12.5. Changing the Intra-Site Replication Interval

Problem

You want to change the number of seconds that a domain controller in a site waits before replicating within the site.

Solution

Using a graphical user interface

  1. Run regedit.exe from the command line or Start Run.

  2. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEM CurrentControlSet Services NTDS Parameters.

  3. If a value entry for Replicator notify pause after modify (secs) does not exist, right-click on Parameters and select New DWORD Value. For the name, enter: Replicator notify pause after modify (secs).

  4. Double-click on the value and enter the number of seconds to wait before notifying intra-site replication partners.

  5. Click OK.

Using a command-line interface

With the following command, change <NumSeconds> to the number of seconds to set the intra-site replication delay to:

> reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters /v "Replicator[RETURN] 
notify pause after modify (secs)" /t REG_DWORD /d <NumSeconds>

Using VBScript

' This code sets the intra-site delay interval 
' ------ SCRIPT CONFIGURATION ------
strDC     = "<DomainControllerName>" ' DC you want to configure
intNumSeconds = <NumSeconds> ' Time in seconds to delay ' ------ END CONFIGURATION --------- const HKLM = &H80000002 strNTDSReg = "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters" set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strDC & _ "\root\default:StdRegProv") objReg.SetDWORDValue HKLM, strNTDSReg, _ "Replicator notify pause after modify (secs)", _ intNumSeconds WScript.Echo ...
