[How to] Initiate Replication of Active Directory objects between Sites.

I use this quite alot when you create users in a site and you want a quick replication between another site.
This is mostly the case when a manger tells you that a new employee has started to work as of today and that users wants to login now.
  1. go to Start, select Programs, select Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Sites and Services.
  2. Expand the Sites container in the left pane. Expand the container that represents the name of the site containing the target server that needs to be synchronized with its replication partners.
  3. Expand the Servers container, and then expand the target server to display the NTDS Settings object.
    This is the crucial step select the target.
  4. Click the NTDS Settings object. The connection objects in the right pane represent the target server's direct replication partners.
  5. Right-click a connection object in the right pane, and then click Replicate Now. Windows 2000 initiates replication of any changes from the source server (the server represented by the connection object) to the target server for all directory partitions the target server is configured to replicate from the source server.
