How to force DFS to replicate

If you need your DFS to replicate now, type this command in: Repadmin /replicate /force
This is helpful when you first start a DFS replication topology. Before files can be transferred, the replication topology must be replicate through normal AD replication. File transfers happen next. Execute this command to speed things up a bit.
The following example replicates the chicagotech naming context from source-dc01 to dest-dc01:
repadmin /replicate dest-dc01 source-dc01 DC=contoso,DC=net

In Windows 2008, you can use DFS Mangement to force the replication. Open DFS Management and navigate to Replication>Replicated folder. Select Connections tab. Right click on the member you want to replicate and then select Replicate Now.
