Active Directory Replication Status Tool #ADServer #ITPro

Microsoft released new tool for System Administrators to monitor the Active Directory replication. This reminds me the good old command line “repadmin”. This tool will go beyond that and provide more information than what given by CSV file output. Apart from that one of the tool I really love when it comes to AD monitoring is Quest tools which acquired by Dell.

The Active Directory Replication Status Tool (ADREPLSTATUS) analyzes the replication status for domain controllers in an Active Directory domain or forest. ADREPLSTATUS displays data in a format that is similar to REPADMIN /SHOWREPL * /CSV imported into Excel but with significant enhancements.

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

Considering the detail level information provided by this tool I would say this is must for System Administrators J
