Overview #

The Skulker Process is a EDirectory Background Processes and part of the EDirectory Synchronization.

  • Distributing modifications to eDirectory objects contained within partition replicas maintained by the eDirectory server
  • Receiving and processing partition operations involving partition replicas hosted by the eDirectory server

DSRepair can report the status of the replica synchronization process from a number of different perspectives:

  • Synchronization status
  • Synchronization status of all servers
  • Synchronization status on the selected server

Ndstrace also provides the ability to monitor the Replica Synchronization process directly.
