File Replication / DC issue

Hi All,

Windows 2000 sp4 PDC (+ All FSMO Roles)
Windows 2003 std newly joined DC to the domain.
After running the usual adprep /forestprep /domainprep etc, followng the Micorsoft whitepapers etc.

We are regularly recieving errors in the event log upon restarting the FRS -
Event ID: 13508

Stating that the SYSVOL folder etc failed to replicate.

I have checked DNS, RDNS, Firewalls, used several registry fixes to no avail.
Why would a newly promoted DC not be able to use the FRS? It has AD installed and DNS and AD seem to replicate - have checked the permissions on the sysvol folder and reset on both servers!

Real lost!

Yea, been through all of these.....

The issue seems to be it cannot find the GC (The 2003 cannot find the 2000 GC).....
This is reflected in the DCDIAG tool.....

Several failures relating to this.....

utiize,

What is the domain functional level of your Server 2003?  By default, it should be Windows 2000, but if by chance it was raised to Server 2003 Native, it probably wouldn't see the Win2K DC.

Also, have you reviewed the DNS Event log to see if there are any errors there?

For some reason it was set to native, back to mixed mode it was!

Supposedly you can't actually put it back into mixed mode once you've elevated the domain functional level... I'd be curious to know if it actually worked!
