 BDCName as String


[in] String BDCName
Name of the BDC to be synchronized.

Sends a request to the Backup Domain Controller (BDC) to fully synchronize its database with that of the Primary Domain Controller (PDC). This synchronization updates all the databases (SAM, LSA and BUILTIN) irrespective of the changes.

To check if the sychronization has been successful, look at the system log of the Event Log on the PDC and BDCs


Dim ServerMgmt As IDomainServerManagement
'Get the IDomainServerManagement interface for domain object
Set ServerMgmt = GetObject ("NTDS://DomainName")
'Fully synchronize the BDC "BDC Name"
