ds: a few of my favorite repadmin commands...

if you're dirt poor and can't afford a monitoring product to watch over replication status in your environment, you can still get "at-a-glance" capability using repadmin. these are some of the commands i use to see what's going on in my environment. mom, you say? well... errr... yes... i... errr. the story is, we have some domain controllers that do not have the mom agent loaded on them. these are domain controllers in an entirely different domain. however, we still replicate with them as a part of our forest so i have to stay vigilant to their health. (in other words, no mom agents on those...) repadmin /replsum * /bysrc /bydest /sort:delta
displays the source and destination domain controllers, along with their delta.
repadmin /showrepl /csv
displays the source and destination pairs in comma-delimited format which is much easier to read than standard output
repadmin /showutvdec /latency
displays the domain controller, usn value, and sorted by time
repadmin /replicate /force
force replication between two domain controllers
