Sync-DfsReplicationGroup

Synchronizes replication between computers regardless of schedule.

Syntax

Sync-DfsReplicationGroup
    [-GroupName] <String[]>
    [-SourceComputerName] <String>
    [-DestinationComputerName] <String>
    [-DurationInMinutes] <UInt32>
    [-WhatIf]
    [-Confirm]
    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Sync-DfsReplicationGroup cmdlet synchronizes replication between a source computer and a destination computer, even if replication is not scheduled by either a replication group or a connection.

This cmdlet ignores the schedule for the specified number of minutes. Use this cmdlet to alter the schedule temporarily to allow replication, because this cmdlet does not require Active Directory replication and LDAP polling.

Examples

Example 1: Replicate between servers for 15 minutes

PS C:\> Sync-DfsReplicationGroup -GroupName "RG01" -SourceComputerName "SRV01" -DestinationComputerName "SRV02" -DurationInMinutes 15

This command allows replication from server SRV01 to SRV02 in the RG01 replication group for 15 minutes, even if the replication happens during a closed replication schedule.

Example 2: Replicate between servers with verbose output

PS C:\> Sync-DfsReplicationGroup -GroupName "RG01" -SourceComputerName "SRV01" -DestinationComputerName "SRV02" -DurationInMinutes 5 -Verbose
VERBOSE: Performing operation "Sync-DfsReplicationGroup" on Target "SRV01".
VERBOSE: The **Sync-DfsReplicationGroup** cmdlet completed successfully.

This command allows replication from server SRV01 to SRV02 in the RG01 replication group for 5 minutes.

Required Parameters

-DestinationComputerName

Specifies the name of the receiving computer. A destination computer is also called an inbound or downstream computer. This computer overrides its schedule and replicates inbound.
