Collected Data and Re-Discovery
A folder named ADReplicationStatusTool is automatically created in: 'C:\Users\<UserName>\Appdata\Local\Temp\' of the logged on user after starting the AD replication Status Tool.
Within this folder a folder called DataModel contains the DataModelIndex.xml file. This file is created every time you start the AD Replication Status Tool. All sub-folders in the ADReplicationStatusTool folder are removed when exiting the tool using the exit menu in the left top corner.
Environment discovery is
only performed once after the AD Replication Status Tool is
started. After the environment has been discovered all the
information needed by AD Replication Status Tool is stored in the
DataModelIndex.xml. This file contains all discovered node types
such as forest, domain, naming context and DC information and is
used by the tool from that point on.
In the same directory as where the DataModelIndex.xml is located all data is stored that is collected for the environment. You typically will see the forest and all DCs have their own separate folder where the collected data is stored in xml files. After exiting the tool all collected data is automatically deleted. If you need to save the current Data Set for later reviewing, the Data Set can be exported. This export process is explained in the Exporting Replication Status information page.
To rerun discovery select Re-Discover Environment? in the Select Replication Status for all DCs in: section, and then click Refresh Replication Status .
