DFSR Management Console

Posted on 2012-08-30

I have been creating Replication Groups in several hosts and I cannot see them to appear in the DFSR Management console of all of them. I expect to have just a view of them for the whole domain in any DFSR host. But it is not happening, even if the replication is working. It is really annoying when you want to manage all the Replication groups from the same console.

What is going on? Why cannot see all the replication groups in all DFSR Management console?

Thank you.

    You need to add all the groups into the console. Right click the replication group and hit add groups to display.

    DFSR Replication groups don't always get added to the console automatically. I've never realised why this happens however it's very simple to add the RG to the display.

    Simply Right click on 'replication' on the left hand side of the DFS Management Console and click 'Add replication Groups to Display'. All your domain based RGs should be listed and you can simply select them all and click ok.
