Domain Contoller

Nope you need to run Exchange 2000 setup and just choose the admin tools on
the second DC.  That'll give you the MMC extensions so that you can admin
Exchange from that DC.

1. Forcing Domain Contoller to replicate information immediately programatically

Programatically we are changing users proxy addresses and mail accounts.
Unfortunately in the process it forces us to wait until the information has
replicated to the other Domain controller (we have 2 currently) before we
can make other modifications.

Does anyone know how to either force changes made to user accounts to
replicate to other domain controllers immediately, or can you tell me where
to find information on making changes programatically on each domain
controller so that I don't have to wait for them to replicate.

This sounds kind of cryptic, but to go and explain our process as we are
currently doing would be even worse.

Thanks in advance
