This is a follow on from a question I posted early in the week.

I have a client with a 2008 Server DC and a 2008 Server as a Terminal Server.

Now once the TS has rebooted, replication to the DC fails, to re-establish replication I have to run
dcdiag /TEST:DNS
Then go into "Active Directory Sites" , drill down to the TS, "Right click" and select "Replicate Now"

My question is, is there a way to use a command line to activate the "Replicate Now" command rather than the "Active Directory Sites and Servers" snap in ?
I want to create a batch file to include the "DCdiag /test:dns and the "Replicate Now" command if possible.
