Finally a ReplMon replacement from Microsoft

Remember the old tool Replmon? Together with DCDiag they are the tools Microsoft Active Directory (AD) experts require to troubleshoot the Windows AD DS. The AD Replication Monitor utility (Replmon.exe) was introduced with the Windows Server 2000 Support Tools many years ago as a GUI mechanism for performing certain Domain Controller administration tasks. With the release of Window Server 2008 Replmon was not included and Microsoft stopped making add-on Support Tools. On the internet there are a lot of questions such as "where do I download the Windows Server 2012 version of Replmon"? Nowhere. If you want it, you must run the old Windows Server 2003 version. If you can get it running on your computer!
Finally Microsoft has produced another tool that is compatible with Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019

Active Directory Replication Status Tool

The Active Directory Replication Status Tool (ADREPLSTATUS) analyzes the replication status for domain controllers in an Active Directory domain or forest. ADREPLSTATUS displays data in a format that is similar to REPADMIN /SHOWREPL * /CSV imported into Excel but with significant enhancements.
Specific capabilities for this tool include:
  • Expose Active Directory replication errors occurring in a domain or forest/domain
  • Prioritize errors that need to be resolved in order to avoid the creation of lingering objects in Active Directory forests
  • Help administrators and support professionals resolve replication errors by linking to Active Directory replication troubleshooting content on Microsoft TechNet
  • Allow replication data to be exported to source or destination domain administrators or support professionals for offline analysis

System Requirements

Supported Operating System

  • Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019
  • ADREPLSTATUS does not install on server core installs of Windows
  • Windows Server 2000, 2003 and 2008 are not supported due to lack of support for .NET Framework 4.6.2 for the client installation. Domains can be monitored from a client with the correct .net level.

Domain membership requirements:

  • Must be joined to the Active Directory domain or forest you intend to monitor

.NET Framework requirements:

  • .NET Framework 4.6.2

Required User Credentials:

  • Target forest/domain user account

DC OS versions that can be monitored by ADREPLSTATUS:

  • Windows Server 2003
  • Windows Server 2003 R2
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2019
Windows 2000 has not been tested and is therefore not supported.

Other Requirements:

ADREPLSTATUS will not work when the following security setting is enabled on the operating system:
  • System cryptography: Use FIPS 140 compliant cryptographic algorithms, including encryption, hashing and signing algorithms

Install instructions.

  1. Go to the website:
  2. Download and run the MSI file.
Warning: There are problems with the licensing of ADREPLSTATUS (April 9th 2021). The main download button on the site listed above provides an installer that will not update the license file :-(. Use this download link instead so ADREPLSTATUS msi installer can upgrade the executable and license file: If you do not like clicking links to executables, copy and paste the text in your browser's address bar.
A new version is created for .net 4.6.2 that probably resolves the licensing issues as well.
