Domain Controller and Global Catalog Scenario


Lets say we have 100 DCs out of which 60 are GCs. We use a multi-site environment. How to know from a single console, which are the GCs in the domain?

We can check the GC’s from AD sites and Services.

This can be achieved by using the Replication Monitor tool (Replmon.exe). This is a tool available from Windows 2003 Support folders. Connect to any domain Controller using ReplMon, and right-click the server name. Choose Show Global Catalog Servers in Enterprise to display a list of all Global Catalog servers in the entire forest.
