You can use this procedure to turn on inbound replication after it has been turned off manually.
To complete this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group in the domain of the domain controller whose replication you are enabling, or you must be a member of the Enterprise Admins group.
To turn on inbound replication
Open a Command Prompt.
Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
repadmin /options ServerName -DISABLE_INBOUND_REPL
where ServerName is the network basic input/output system (NetBIOS) name of the domain controller.
Verify that the option is set. The following message should appear:
Current DC options: DISABLE_INBOUND_REPL
New DC Options: <none>
Current DC Options displays the conditions that were in effect at the time that you ran the command. New DC Options shows the effect of the command, which is that the option to disable replication is not set.
