We have just recovered from some serious SYSVOL errors caused by our AV software, alls working now and gpotool reports that the SYSVOL and AD match! However when I run a repadmin /getchanges it just streams over the millions of updates which appears to me that there are plenty of unsync'd objects, however when I run a repadmin /queue <dsa> it says theres nothing in the queue! All objects in the directory appear to be replicating correctly, to test this we changes an attrib on a specfic user account and checked it manually on each DC, all appears to be working?  Basically I would like to know if repadmin /getchanges is giving bogus output, should I be concerned with this?  

Many thanks.

    /getchanges is deprecated; use /showchanges instead.
    To verify that your replication is up to date between a source and a target DC, you need this syntax:
    repadmin /showchanges target-DC.domain.local <GUID of Source-DC> dc=domain,dc=local
    You can retrieve the GUIDs for example with repadmin /showrepl.
