Replication and Data Integrity

Microsoft® Active Directory® directory service provides multi-master update. Multi-master update means that all full replicas of a given partition are writable (the partial replicas on global catalog servers are not writable.) Multi-master update means that updates are not blocked even when some replicas are inoperable. Active Directory propagates the changes from the updated replica to all other replicas. Replication is automatic and transparent.
