How to force global catalog replication
Repadmin is used to view the replication information on domain controllers. You can determine the last successful replication of all directory partitions, identify inbound and outbound replication partners, identify the current bridgehead servers, view object metadata, and generally manage Active Directory replication topology. You can use Repadmin to force replication of an entire directory partition or of a single object. You can also list domain controllers in a site.
Repadmin is extended in Windows ServerÂ 2003 to enable commands to target sets of domain controllers. For example, you can target all domain controllers in a site or domain, or all domain controllers that are global catalog servers. In WindowsÂ 2000 Server, Repadmin can report information about only one domain controller at a time.
