W2K Server Replication Problem
Posted on 2004-09-08
I have two servers that are set up as domain controllers. AS1, and AS2. AS1 is the "pdc." I'm not getting any DNS errors and everything looks fine in the zones, as in, the _msdcs, _sites, _tcp, and _udp folders were created. Both servers have entries in both forward and reverse lookup and they are correct. I can also ping both servers from eachother. AD is replicating fine. The netlogon share is what's not replicating.
When I restart the FRS I get and Event ID 13508:
The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from AS1 to AS2 for c:\winnt\sysvol\domain using the DNS name as1.prendie.edu. FRS will keep retrying.
I also get an Event ID 3019 from source MXrSmb:
The redirector failed to determine the connection type.
Actually, this is new, I just tried it (restarting netlogon and frs) and got an Event ID 5774 from Netlogon:
Registration of the DNS record '5d59bc26-09da-40dc-a422-111c1b08467e._msdcs.prendie.edu. 600 IN CNAME as2.prendie.edu.' failed with the following error:
DNS RR set that ought to exist, does not exist. .
I can't get this 2nd domain controller off because when I run dcpromo it says:
The operation failed because:
The Directory Service failed to replicate off changes made locally.
"The DSA operation is unable to proceed because of a DNS lookup failure."
Any help is appreciated.
