A common scenario is two domain controllers at different sites. Since the connection between the two site is likely to be slow, you want to keep as much traffic as possible from crossing over those links. If you are at site A and you log on to the network, you would want a domain controller on site A to authenticate you, rather than using the slow (and potentially unreliable) connection between to have the controller in site B authenticate you.

For some reason you decided you need to force Active Directory Replication between Domain controllers follow these steps

Start–>Programs—>Administrative Tools—> Active Directory Sites and Services (For windows 2000 Server)

Start–>Programs—>Administrative Tools—> Active Directory Sites and Services (For windows 2003 Server)

Now expand Sites from left pane –> your site name –> Yourservername–> NTDS Settings –>Now select the <automatically generated> object from right pane

right click on it and select replicate now

This causes the Yourservername to PULL from the DC represented by the connection object

We replicate so that each Domain Controller maintains the same data providing load balancing, fault tolerance and geographic distribution where necessary
