You can configure Connection Agreements to perform replication
on a defined schedule. You must determine the most appropriate
times for each replication process. An organization with a large
number of users may require more frequent replication than a
smaller organization. Also, some networks may require specific
objects to be replicated more frequently than other objects.
These are some of the situations you must consider when planning
a replication schedule:
If you are replicating more than 500 users or mailboxes, you
can improve performance by setting up multiple Connection
Agreements to replicate different objects at different times.
If you make daily changes to either directory and do not need
the changes to appear in the other directory until the next day,
you should schedule replication nightly.
If there are times during the day when other replication occurs
on either computer involved in the Connection Agreement, schedule
the Connection Agreement around these times.
If directory manipulation is commonly done at specific times
during the week, customize the replication to occur soon after the
changes are made and only after the changes are made.
