        The Active Directory Replication Status Tool (ADREPLSTATUS) analyzes the replication status for domain controllers in an Active Directory domain or forest. ADREPLSTATUS displays data in a format that is similar to REPADMIN /SHOWREPL * /CSV imported into Excel but with significant enhancements.

        Specific capabilities for this tool include:

          • Expose Active Directory replication errors occurring in a domain or forest
          • Prioritize errors that need to be resolved in order to avoid the creation of lingering objects in Active Directory forests
          • Help administrators and support professionals resolve replication errors by linking to Active Directory replication troubleshooting content on Microsoft TechNet
          • Allow replication data to be exported to source or destination domain administrators or support professionals for offline analysis
    • Supported Operating System

      Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Vista

          • ADREPLSTATUS does not install on server core installs of Windows
          • Windows 2000 not supported due to lack of support for .NET Framework 4.0
