I have a windows 2000 network running 4 domain controllers. 3 on the main site and one in another site. Server 2 is DNM, and SM, server 1 is everything else. Both have the Global Catalog. Server 3 is just another DC with the global catalog. Server 4 in the other site is another DC with the GC. Ever server has a DNS server on it except server 3, and none are configured to look at themselves for domain name lookup in the primary dns field.
Every morning I get this error message
Event Id: 13508
The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from AZGOV-DC2 to AZGOV-DC1 for c:\windows\sysvol\domain using the DNS name azgov-dc2.azgov.state.az.us. FRS will keep retrying.
Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name azgov-dc2.azgov.state.az.us from this computer.
 FRS is not running on azgov-dc2.azgov.state.az.us.
 The topology information in the Active Directory for this replica has not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.
This event log message will appear once per connection, After the problem is fixed you will see another event log message indicating that the connection has been established.
According to MS this message is usually followed by a 13509 to show that communication was finally made, but I never see that message. Sysvol replicatoin seems to be working but I am concerned that there might be something else wrong here. I can nslookup every server from any other server, and dns isnt reporting any errors or anything. All the Host records and ptr's are in the dns database, so I dont see how it could be a dns issue. Anybody have any idea?
