You can use this procedure to synchronize replication with all replication partners of a domain controller.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group in the domain of the selected domain controller or the Enterprise Admins group in the forest, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If you want to synchronize the configuration and schema directory partitions on a domain controller in a child domain, you must have Domain Admins credentials in the forest root domain or Enterprise Admins credentials in the forest.
To synchronize replication with all partners
At a command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
repadmin /syncall DCName /e /d /A /P /q
The Domain Name System (DNS) name of the domain controller on which you want synchronize replication with all partners
Enterprise; includes partners in all sites.
Identifies servers by distinguished name in messages.
All; synchronizes all directory partitions that are held on the home server.
Pushes changes outward from the home server.
Runs in quiet mode; suppresses callback messages.
Check for replication errors in the output of the command in the previous step. If there are no errors, replication is successful. For replication to complete, any errors must be corrected.
