What is Intrasite replication?

Intrasite replication occurs between DCs within a site. The system implementing such replication uses high-speed, synchronous Remote Procedure Calls (RPCs). Within a site, a ring topology is created by the KCC between the DCs for replication (see Figure 2.22).

What is intrasite and intersite replication topology?

The difference between these two replication topologies can be summarised below: Intra-site replication refers to replication between domain controllers in the same site whereas Inter-site replication refers to replication between DCs belonging to different sites.

What is the purpose of Active Directory replication?

Active Directory replication is the method of transferring and updating Active Directory objects from one DC to another DC. The connections between DCs are built based on their locations within a forest and site.

What is the default intrasite replication interval?

By default, this interval is 15 seconds in Windows Server 2003 and later versions. When this interval elapses, the domain controller initiates a notification to each intra-site replication partner that it has changes that need to be propagated.

What is the schedule for non urgent intrasite replication?

What is the schedule for non-urgent intrasite replication? 15 Seconds after any change occurs, with a 3-second delay between partners.

How is Active Directory replicated?

The Active Directory replication topology most commonly deployed in this scenario is based on a hub-and-spoke design, where branch domain controllers in multiple sites replicate with a small number of bridgehead servers in a hub site. One of the benefits of deploying RODC in this scenario is unidirectional replication.

What is Ntds setting?

Every server object contains an NTDS Settings object, which represents the domain controller in the replication system. The NTDS Settings object stores connection objects, which make replication possible between two or more domain controllers.

What is DC in Active Directory?

The domain controller (DC) is the box that holds the keys to the kingdom- Active Directory (AD). While attackers have all sorts of tricks to gain elevated access on networks, including attacking the DC itself, you can not only protect your DCs from attackers but actually use DCs to detect cyberattacks in progress.
