According to two microsoft webpages:


whenChanged is not replicated but if you examine ldapcmp.py (the bit of 
samba-tool that compares AD databases) you will find this:

                 # "whenChanged", # This is implicitly replicated

So somebody went to all the trouble of adding it, but then commented it out.
