- A feature of Active Directory that provides and maintains copies of the directory across multiple servers in a domain. Since all replicas of a given directory partition are writable, updates can be applied to any replica of a given partition. The Active Directory replication system propagates the changes from a given replica to all other replicas. Replication is automatic and transparent. Active Directory multi-master replication propagates every object (such as users, groups, computers, domains, organization units, security policies, and so on) created on any domain controller to each of the other participating domain controllers. If one domain controller in a domain slows or fails, other domain controllers in the same domain can provide the necessary directory access because they contain the same directory data.
