replication

By craig2599 ·
I cannot seem to get my replication to work right I have my policy file in the repl\import\scripts folder and they do not replicate to the bdc when I sync. I setup replicator account and setup replication through server manager. Other things updateokay like when I create a user on a workstation that has admin tools it updated to pdc immediately. I cannot figure out what is wrong, I am tired of changing the policies file on the pdc and then having to change it on the bdc. Any help would be great

Actually, repl\import\scripts is the Netlogon share. If you have replication turned on, you need to update repl\export\scripts. I created a share pointing to repl\export\scripts called NETLUPDT so I don't have to dig, but anything you put in repl\export\scripts will overwrite anything in repl\import\scripts on the PDC as well as on any BDCs

One other thing to remember is that the repl account needs the proper rights to write to the import directories. Also replication is not instantaneos most of the time, especially when there are a lot of destinations.

You were correect in saying that the files need to be placed in the Export\scripts directory for replication to run. I would suggest the following check the replication status and if it says that the dir is locked then try to see why. Place the machine name that contains source within the import server list (to verifiy that it works).
Start and stop the directory replication service (this will send a refresh, only way to do it).
Verify the permissions for the replication service I believe it needs to have Domain Backup and Replication permissions. Not local permissions.
