Multi Site replication

Hi All,

I have a win2k shop with 16 sites.  My questions is that replicatation takes a long time.  How can I speed it up?  Also  Why out of all the 16 servers 1 site automatically generates a connection to all other servers?  Meaning that server "X" is like the central hub for all the other servers.  Would that not slow the replication process?  I have deleted and added manual connections to see if that would help. But they keep coming back.  So it's like all the servers go to server  "X" to replicate.  FYI server "x" is not the head office server.

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance...Mark

That server "X" is most likely FSMO holder. All other DCs connect to this server because it is PDC emulator and it is responsible (among other things) for synchronizing time in your domain.
Your site links in Active Directory Sites and Services should mimic your WAN links between sites. If you have incorrect site topology you could use "repadmin /latency" and "dcdiag /test:intersite". But first set replication interval on your site links for replication to occur more often.

I will test it out.  But what would you recommend setting the replication interval on

Default is 180 minutes and minimum is 15 minutes. Setting would depend on utilization od your WAN links.

I changed the site links and increased the frequency of the replication.  I grouped branches by closest locations (ie. Eastern, cerntral and western Ontaio and western Canada) And after testing it works well.  thanks
