Edit the replication filters for a replicated folder
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, click the replication group that contains the replicated folder whose filters you want to edit.
In the details pane, on the Replicated Folders tab, right-click a replicated folder, and then click Properties.
On the General tab, edit the existing filters or add new filters.
Filter changes are not applied immediately. The updated filters must be replicated to all domain controllers, and each member in the replication group must poll its closest domain controller to obtain the changes. 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.
