Add a member to a replication group
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2
Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DFS Management.
In the console tree, under the Replication node, right-click a replication group, and then click New Member.
Follow the instructions in the New Member Wizard.
Replication does not begin immediately on the new member. The DFS Replication settings for the new member must be replicated to all domain controllers, and each member in the replication group must poll its closest domain controller to obtain these settings. The amount of time this takes depends on Active Directory replication latency, the short polling interval (5 minutes) on the new member, and the long polling interval (60 minutes) on existing members.
Security requirements for performing this task are described in Security requirements for setting up and managing DFS Replication.
To check the status of replication, or to troubleshoot replication, create a diagnostic report. For more information, see Create a diagnostic report for DFS Replication.
