State of Microsoft Active Directory Replication between DCs

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Windows

The check analyzes the replication status of Microsoft Active Directory Domain Controllers. Each replication partner of a Domain Controller results in one separate service.

The number of replication failures and the times of the last successful/failed replications are checked. The check raises a CRITICAL state when the maximum failed threshold is reached and when the last failed replication is newer than the last successful replication.

The windows agent needs to be extended with the ad_replication.bat provided in agents/windows/plugins.


The name of the replication partner.


Each replication partner results in one service.
