  • Microsoft Metadirectory Services 2.1

This article was previously published under Q250482


You can set up replication agreements between two different Microsoft Metadirectory Services (MMS) servers to create a shadow copy of some part of the directory tree held on a master server. The master server manages the information and updates the copy on another server when you run the replication agreement. You can also schedule the replication to occur automatically at certain intervals.


There are three types of replication agreements that you can configure:

  • Replicate a zone from another LDAP server.
  • Update contact records by querying other LDAP servers.
  • Allow another LDAP server to access metaverse data.

The Junction node is at the top of the zone you are moving. A zone in MMS is a subtree of the metaverse. When you create any replication agreement, the Junction node is defined when you initially select the subtree in the metaverse that you are replicating. The Junction node is in the form of a Distinguished Name, because it refers to the location of the subtree in the Metaverse.

How to Set Up a Replication Agreement

  1. Select an organizational unit that you would like to replicate.
  2. Click Actions in the Action Panel, and then click New Replication Agreement.
  3. Select Replicate a zone from another LDAP server from Type of Agreement, and then click OK.
  4. On the Configure tab, type the LDAP URL of the secondary server under Connection Information. For example, you might type ldap:// (LDAP Port).
  5. Click Anonymous under Authentication.
  6. Click Start replication.
