Active Directory Replication Status Tool (ADREPLSTATUS)

September 12, 2012 Leave a comment

Since we miss REPLMON in Windows Server 2008 (R2). Now I’ve found a tool that could be my new favorite to check the Active Directory synchronization from the Domain or Forest with a GUI Tool.


Screenshot of the Tool start

After ADREPLSTATUS is started, you can select, if you will be check Your Domain or Your Forest. Insight ADREPLSTATUS you find tree tab’s for:
– Configuration/Scope Settings
– What Is Replication Topology
– How Replication Topology Works

On the right site from ADREPLSTATUS you can find two tab’s for :
– Environment Discovery Status
– Replication Status Collection Details

And last but not least you can export you replication status into excel or xps format. There is also possible to filter the  result to export only the error.


Now it’s time to test it !! You can download ADREPLSTATUS direct from Microsoft Download.
