While we are at it I might as well say I hate how long I got to wait for replication to take place when I change a display name in exchange or for exchange but in Active directory users an computers.  Its ridiculous.  I want a dog on "syncronize now" option or its equivilant.  No I cant reboot, production server

To force a replication:

1. Open AD Sites and Services
2. Drill down to the %sitename%, Servers, %servername%, NTDS Settings,
3. Right click the connection you want to replicate and select replicate now.


To configure replication intervals between WAN subnets
1. Open AD Sites and Services
2. Drill down to Sites, Inter-Site Transports, IP
3. Select the properties of the WAN link you want to configure and set the replication interval.

did I mention we are 1 domain?

I might have made a mistake by not telling you guys that.

I do not need to sync with other wans or sites.  We "domain1" are our only site.  Therefore, does your above "howto" still need to be considered because I do not get any right click option with the "replicate now"
