Chapter 17. AD replication

You’ve seen that AD domain controllers work in a multi-master fashion. This means that you can make changes, like modifying a user account or changing group membership on any domain controller. If that’s all that happens, you’ll be left with multiple versions of the same user account or groups that “think” that they have different membership lists depending on which domain controller you’re looking at. This is a recipe for chaos.

Try it Now: Test data is identical across domain controllers
