Testing AD replication

Posted by: | February 16, 2015 Comments Off on Testing AD replication |

I thought that using a workflow with its foreach –parallel construct would be a good way to test AD replication.


I found that I got double the results – the foreach seemed to go to each machine twice.


Eventually decided to perform the task sequentially

Get-ADDomainController -Filter * |
foreach {
  Get-ADReplicationUpToDatenessVectorTable -Target $($psitem.Hostname) -Partition * |
  select Server, LastReplicationSuccess, Partition,
  @{N=’Partner’; E={(($_.Partner -split ",")[1]).Remove(0,3)}}, USnFilter
} | ft –a


There are a number of cmdlets for working with AD replication that are worth investigating

under: PowerShell and Active Directory
