A new tool for Active Directory called AD Replication Status Tool

Very interesting to see the release of AD Replication Status Tool from a dedicated group of people in MSFT. I had a read of the release on Technet Blog post from Ask the Directory Services Team and probably give it a try tomorrow.

This is a read only tool and comes with a compilation of recommended troubleshooting content for replication error.

Here is the preview screenshot of the tool – http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2012/08/23/ad-replication-status-tool-is-live.aspx
