Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have 7 domain controllers.  All domain controllers are in different parts of the county.  When i add a new user on Exchange 2007 server (Win 2003R2) it typically takes hours for the user to show up on the other domain controllers.  How can i speed this up?

Thanks

Do you have different sites setup in AD for those DCs.  Check to see what the interval time is on the site links.  The default time is 180 minutes, you can lower that.

Thanks

Find the site link between two of your sites and look at the properties - it has options for when, and how often replication can occur.
