Fix connection in Active Directory Sites and Services

Any recommendation on how to fix manually created connection in AD Sites and Services?  All my connections are automatically generated.  One however, created manually for known reasons.  I don't want to remove it in case it breaks something.   How would you normally fix that.   I want all connection sites to be healthy auto-generated.
Ideas?
Thank you!!

There's no way that "manually created ones" would have been created by KCC

You can delete all connections (directly from the actual server) then recheck the replication topology

Correct.  Its been created by someone as a test.  Now I want to fix it.  But don't want to just remove it.

Well, you have to :)
As I said, delete all, from MMC connected to the actual server not remotely, and recheck topology

All connections??  Not sure I want to do that.  During the bus. hours especially :)
Shaun VermaakTechnical SpecialistCommented:
I have done this hundreds of times, but yes, anything can happen.

Delete manual connections and recheck topology. Like I said twice already, the MMC must be connected to the server on which you are deleting and checking topology

I'm RDP'ed directly to the server.  I will try it later then..
 And how long do you think it'll take to replicate across all other domain controllers?  So I will be able to see those changes on other DCs as well.

Good strategy but still make sure the MMC is local

And how long do you think it'll take to replicate across all other domain controllers?  So I will be able to see those changes on other DCs as well.
Normal replication interval
