Select a Replication Direction
For recipient Connection Agreements, you can choose the direction of replication based on the directory management requirements of your organization. You can select one-way or two-way replication. During one-way replication, directory information is replicated from Exchange to Windows or from Windows to Exchange. During two-way replication, directory information is replicated to and from both directories.
Note All public folder Connection Agreements require two-way replication. The direction is automatically selected when you create a public folder Connection Agreement, and you cannot change it.
For more information about ADC one-way and two-way replication, see Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Planning and Installation.
To select a replication direction:
By default, objects are first replicated from Exchange to Windows. To update the Exchange directory first, on the Advanced tab, in Initial replication direction for two-way Connection Agreements, select From Windows.
Note To have the option of adding Exchange mailboxes when creating new users in Active Directory Users and Computers, you must configure a two-way Connection Agreement or a one-way Connection Agreement from Windows to Exchange. A one-way Connection Agreement from Exchange to Windows does not provide you with the option of adding a mailbox for the user because one already exists.
