Site Link Objects

Site links are manually created by an administrator who wants to connect to Active Directory sites for the purpose of replicating objects. Site links enable the administrator to create a schedule, during which replication can occur; establish the frequency at which replication will occur within the confines of the schedule; determine the transport protocol that will be used by the site link; and establish a cost to provide a level of fault tolerance to the replication topology. When an administrator creates a site link between two sites, a KCC with the ISTG role creates the connection objects between the bridgehead servers in each site. In addition, these servers are selected by the ISTG, unless manually overridden.
