12.8. Checking for Potential Replication Problems

Problem

You want to determine if replication is succeeding.

Solution

The following two commands will help identify problems with replication on a source domain controller:

> dcdiag /test:replications
> repadmin /showrepl /errorsonly

Discussion

For a more detailed report, you can use the Replication Monitor (replmon.exe). The Generate Status Report option will produce a lengthy report of site topology, replication information, and provide details on any errors encountered. The Directory Service event log can also be an invaluable source of replication and KCC problems.
