.Hi i recently installed a new windows 2000 server to use as a dc and i am looking in the event log and replication is failed the error information im getting is "the file replication service is having trouble enabling replication from "dc server name", to secondary dc for c:\winnt\sysvol\domain using the DNS name \\DC. FRS will keep retrying.
following are some of the reasons you might see this warning".

*********************************************************************************
1.FRS can not correctly resolve DNS name "dc" from this computer.
2.FRS is not running on "DC"
3.the topology information in active directory for this replica has not yet replicated to all domain controllers.
*********************************************************************************

When i run DNS lookup it resolves all queries fine, and as far as i know replication is running on the DC ive checked all the places i can think of and it is enabled so perhaps if someone could give me a few other places to try also another secondary Dc is unable to replicate so i know its the main DC itself.

Hi

Check for replication errors with the command : repadmin /showreps

Just in case... also run DCDIAG on the failing DC and post the results here

Hi,

stop and re-start the NTFRS, file replication service, and check the event log for file replication.

If that still gives you errors, you may have a jrnl wrap error, here are the steps to correct it.

a.      Open Regedit
b.      Goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTFRS\Parameters, click on the value “Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore”
i.      If value does not exist, create a new DWORD value.
c.      Set value to 1
d.      Stop and restart NTFRS service
e.      Check File Replication Service event log and wait for journal wrap error to be fixed.
f.      Reset registry value of “Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore” to 0.

Good Luck,

i would agree with  vsg375
first check whether Ad replication is working fine, use repadmin or replmon.
stop and start NTFRS and check for the exact error, proceed with the troubleshooting depending upon the events.

Well the DC eventually decided not to like anything and left the domain without anyone's permission. Oh joy! Managed to rebuild and replication is working fine.

Still got a migration error with 2003 but that is another matter........................
