Check Object Replication Status across Active Directory Forest

Let’s assume you have hundreds of domain controllers running in your Active Directory forest and you want to ensure that an object once created on in Active Directory can be seen by all domain controllers in the Active Directory Forest. For example, you want to check status of a newly created user.


1. Get all domain controllers list and store in a text file by executing the command below:

  • DSQuery Server –O RDN > DCList.txt

2.Run below command to check the status of user in each domain controller:

  • For /F “Tokens=*” %L IN (DCList.TXT) DO DSQuery user –DomainRoot –Name TestUser > OutPut.txt
