Create a topology
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 the replication group to create a new topology for, and then click New Topology.
Follow the instructions in the New Topology Wizard.
Replication in the new topology does not begin immediately. The topology and DFS Replication settings 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 and the long polling interval (60 minutes) on each member.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group in Active Directory, or you must have been delegated the ability to manage an existing replication group. If you are the creator of the replication group, you can also perform this procedure.
