Replicating Active Directory

The Replication View provides valuable information about the two domain controllers selected for data replication. The information consists of the immediate replication partners for the target server and the recommended replication path between the two servers. From the Replication View, you can also initiate an end-to-end data replication for these domain controllers.

1
Select Active Directory Health | Troubleshooter.
2
Open the Troubleshooting tab.
6
Click Browse to locate the source domain controller.
7
Click Browse to locate the target domain controller.

9
Expand Replication view, and select the replication.
The Replication view displays the source and target domain controllers, the shared naming contexts for the two servers, and the target’s immediate replication partners.
The Recommended Replication Path list displays the source and target servers for each naming context. Selecting/unselecting naming contexts show/hide pairs in the Recommended replication path list.
Last attempt: date and time when the last replication was attempted
Last result: results of the last replication process
Last success: date and time of the last successful replication
Consecutive failures: number of consecutive failures encountered during the last replication session
Current USN: current Update Sequence Number (USN)
The Unreplicated changes window displays the source and target servers, the selected naming context, unreplicated objects, and unreplicated attributes for the selected object.
To filter the list of unreplicated objects, start typing in the Filter objects box. The display updates as you type.

Recovering Active Directory Health data

In the event that you may need to recover the Active Directory Health module set up and data, we recommend that you follow these steps to collect the necessary information to restore the Active Directory Health module.

Topics:

Preparing for data recovery

To prepare for the possibility of data recovery, record information about the Active Administrator® installation and back up the necessary folders and files.

All permissions on the ActiveAdministrator folder share
Contents of the ActiveAdministrator folder share

Restoring the Active Directory Health module and data

These steps assume that you are recovering both the Active Administrator® server and the Active Administrator databases. To make the recovery faster it is recommended, if possible, to use the same Active Administrator server name.

1
Option 1: Remove and install all Active Directory Health Analyzer agents using the Active Administrator Console. See Installing Active Directory Health Analyzer agents.
Option 2: Use the Active Directory Health Agent Configuration utility, which you can find at C:\Windows\DAAgent\DAAgentConfig.exe. See Using the Active Directory Health Analyzer agent configuration utility.
