Hi,

I have setup DFS replication between 2 servers in an Active Directory environment. How often is data replicated between the 2 servers? Is it possible to change the replication interval?

I've set the replication schedule to all hours.

I'm using Windows 2003 R1 (old version of DFS).

Thanks

5 Minutes on Domain controllers.

To change the interval:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters
DS polling long interval in minutes
DS Polling short internal in minutes

*  I would recommend upgrading to R2.  DFS in R2 is much more reliable.
