Active Directory Replication Status Tool

In 2012, Microsoft has released Active Directory Replication Status Tool which has capability to analyze the replication status of the DC?s in the domain & forests. You can fetch the report either to the Excel, XPS or any other. The tool can also filter the error, help you to select the scope of the forest or domain to be analyzed, point you to the online technet references.

Specific capabilities for this tool include:

  • Expose Active Directory replication errors occurring in a domain or forest.
  • Prioritize errors that need to be resolved in order to avoid the creation of lingering objects in Active Directory forests.
  • Help administrators and support professionals resolve replication errors by linking to Active Directory replication troubleshooting content on Microsoft TechNet.
  • Allow replication data to be exported to source or destination domain administrators or support professionals for offline analysis.

The tool ADREPLSTATUS can be downloaded from the below link.
