IDomainServerManagement Method: SynchronizeBDCPartially

 BDCName as String


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

Sends a request to the Backup Domain Controller (BDC) to synchronize its database with that of the Primary Domain Controller (PDC). This synchronization is "smart" as only the changes since the last synchronization are requested.

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

The PDC asks all its BDCs to synchronize their databases irrespective of the BDC specified.


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