Replication Change List Creation

Updated: November 25, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Each domain controller periodically generates a list of changes that were made to the Active Directory database. These changes represent the information that must be replicated to other domain controllers to keep the database consistent. If the change list cannot be generated, changes cannot be communicated to other domain controllers and the database will not be consistent.
