How to optimize Active Directory replication in a large network

The Knowledge Consistency Checker (KCC) dynamically adjusts the data replication topology of your network when domain controllers are added to or removed from the network, when a domain controller is unavailable, or when the data replication schedules are changed.

The tasks of the KCC are:

Based on the network topology described by Active Directory objects, the KCC creates connection objects which are used to define inbound and outbound replication to domain controllers:

For sources within the same site, inbound to the domain controller on which the KCC is running.
For sources in different sites, inbound to the site in which the KCC is running, if the domain controller on which the KCC is running is the elected interSiteTopologyGenerator for its site.
Convert the KCC-defined and administrator-defined Microsoft Windows NT Directory Service Connection (ntdsConnection) objects into a configuration understood by the Directory Service (DS) replication engine.

By default, each of these tasks is executed every 15 minutes. For more information about the KCC, please see the Active Directory Replication chapter in the Windows 2000 Resource Kit.
