In some situations, it is necessary to manually force a replication between two domain controllers (DC). You need to run the replication for every Active Directory (AD) partition separately.

To replicate the AD partitions from the domain controller DC1 to DC2, run:

# samba-tool drs replicate DC2 DC1 dc=samdom,dc=example,dc=com
Replicate from DC1 to DC2 was successful.

# samba-tool drs replicate DC2 DC1 DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=samdom,DC=example,DC=com
Replicate from DC1 to DC2 was successful.

# samba-tool drs replicate DC2 DC1 CN=Configuration,DC=samdom,DC=example,DC=com
Replicate from DC1 to DC2 was successful.

# samba-tool drs replicate DC2 DC1 DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=samdom,DC=example,DC=com
Replicate from DC1 to DC2 was successful.

# samba-tool drs replicate DC2 DC1 CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=samdom,DC=example,DC=com
Replicate from DC1 to DC2 was successful.

To resynchronise all objects between two domain controllers, pass the --full-sync option to the command.
