Making Active Directory replication between sites almost instant
When you have a multi-site environment in AD, the lowest interval that you can set your replication schedule to is 15 minutes. This has been around since the old days when replication could significantly impact a sub-megabit WAN connection. Now, with modern MPLS connections of 20Mbps or greater being extremely common, it makes sense to enable change notification between sites. This allows for near-instant replication like you're accustomed to enjoying with domain controllers in the same site.
