Using the standard GUI Microsoft Management Consoles to make the change to speed up Active Directory replication is not possible. The best result of using administrator consoles will be to increase domain replication between domain controllers to 15 minutes. These large time values were instituted into Active Directory at version 1 because inter-site connections during that era of computing and networking were much lower in bandwidth with the most common being frame-relay or 56k circuits. Since then, inter-site connections and the Internet speeds have increased tremendously so faster domain controller replication is possible even over wan links.
Fast Intersite Replication Interval – Speed up DC Replication, Updates are in Seconds
To enabled faster Intersite Replication, to nearly the speed of intra-site or LAN replication, use ADSI Edit.
Start ADSI edit and go to
Configuration > then Sites > Inter Site Transports > IP.
Note this setting cannot be enabled for SMTP InterSite links.
Unless it has been renamed, right click on the default Intersite link and choose properties. Then scroll down to the options line. Double-click and change the value to 1 if it has a value .
<not set> is the default unless this option has been previously modified. Once changed to 1, click OK twice to save and close the properties window.
Force a replication using Sites and Services so this setting get pushed/pulled to the other domain controllers.
Test by creating a couple of test accounts in AD.
Check your other domain controller or controllers for the new account. You will see it appear in seconds.
