a 2003 sbs server was replicating fine to a 2000 standard server across a vpn all fine then all of a sudden error messages of a kerberos nature users on the 2000 side coulndt log on etc managed to sort all out except now the DNS is taken off the 2000 server as it is only the 2000 server that replicates all to the 2003 server the 2003 server cannot replicate and all operrations are on the 2003 server all dns on the 2003 server is tested ok.  dont want to rebuild the 2003 server but will try to jion another 2000 server to elimainate the 2000 side what are the chances that on of the hotfix updates has nadged the 2003 server ????? microsoft have given up when i mentioned this...

Kerberos gets very unhappy when the time on the two machines in question is out by more than 5 minutes. Make sure the two machines are set to the same time and correct timezone.

For the benefit of other viewers...

Not sure what microsoft would have said to you, but it is a fact that a 5 minute drift on domain controllers (or any member of a domain) will cause kerberos errors and can stop replication on Domain Controllers.

This figure is configurable in GPO, but it is not advised to mess about with kerberos settings without knowing what you're doing.

Therefore, in any situation where replication is failing it is never a bad idea to check that time and timezones are configured correctly.

Nevertheless, thanks for the points and glad you have a direction to go now.

Cheers
