Hi All,
Not sure if this is quite the right forum, but it's the closest one I could find.

Kind of a newb to the whole Active Directory thing on windows 2000 server, so be gentle :)

We've got a large world-spanning network with a master domain here at home office.  Each of the 15 other locations is a child domain off of this master.  In our domain replication logs for each server, there are a lot of Event ID 1265 "RPC unreachable" errors.

The thing is, I don't want the child domains to talk to anyone but the daddy; our VPN won't allow them to, they're not explicitly set to trust one another.  Is there a way to stop KCC from trying to get these guys to talk?  (a lot of wasted network traffic and troublesome looking error messages - probably some other crap I'm not aware of too)

As always, information for the greenhorn is much appreciated.
