I have been searching for how to configure Intrasite replication among dcs but instead I only see for Intersite Replication. Is there any hand-on or labs on how to configure intrasite replication topology or can I even configure intrasite? If there is, please let me know. Thank you!

    Hi

    Intrasite replication is done automaticly by the system. The system do by default a Intrasite ring, and if you have Intersite from there you can create weight on each site, and the system link those ring to another one depending on your setup.

    A good read for that subject; How Active Directory Replication Topology Works and Active Directory Replication Concepts

    Thanks

    Hi,

    The KCC automatically creates replication connections between DCs within the site.
    It is usually not necessary to create manual connections when the KCC is being used to generate automatic connections; if any conditions change, the KCC automatically reconfigures the connections.

    Adding manual connections when the KCC is employed can potentially increase replication traffic and conflicts with optimal settings stipulated by KCC.

    But you really need to create the connection manually, you can do this through AD site and services as following:

    Note that when you modify a connection object, you convert it into an administratively modified connection object and the object appears in the form of a GUID. The KCC does not make changes to manual or modified connection objects.
