Add a Member to a Replication Group

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Follow this procedure to add a member to a replication group.

To add a member to a replication group

  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DFS Management.

  2. In the console tree, under the Replication node, right-click a replication group, and then click New Member.

  3. Follow the instructions in the New Member Wizard.


Replication of the new replicated folder does not begin immediately. The new 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 AD DS replication latency and the long polling interval (60 minutes) on each member.
