Get-ADReplicationPartnerMetadata - Cmdlet Syntax and Real World Examples

March 05, 2018 0 Comments PowerShell, Active-Directory

SYNOPSIS

Returns the replication metadata for a set of one or more replication partners

DESCRIPTION

The Get-ADReplicationPartnerMetadata cmdlet returns information related to an Active Directory replication partner and its replication partners. This includes attributes such as LastReplicationSuccess or LastReplicationAttempt and other data specific to each pairing of replication partners.

If the results are too verbose for your needs, you can use the Partition parameter to specify a partition to narrow down the results. Optionally, you can use the Filter parameter to narrow down results as well. If no partition or filter are specified for the results, the default naming context is used and metadata for all replication partners is returned.
