Site Replication Service Error

When trying to add a new System Replication Service I get the following error:

Exchange System Manager
The Server is not operational.
Facility: Win32
ID: 8007203a

There is already one entry in there from one of the Exchange Servers (E2k) but I am trying to create another one on the E2k3 Server. Both are running Windows 2003 Server. I have set Repliaction in all the folders but the users mailbox are not propogating into the new server and I think they should be doing after a few hours? How can I check other than looking in ESM under the new server first site storage mailboxes?

Also, the Service for MS Exchange Site Replication Service keeps setting itself to disabled and stopping???

Why are you trying to add an SRS? That is for mixed sites with Exchange 5.5 servers. If you don't have any Exchange 5.5 servers then you don't need SRS. You also don't need the active directory connector.

I just assumed wrongly that this must be whats missing, and why the servers do not seem to be synchronising as there are no mailboxes in the new storage, it doesnt seem to be working. I did check basic send and receive from both exchange servers which was ok, but when i choose which exchange server to add on AD creation of new users the user still doesnt get put into the opposite servers first store, though they do appear in the address book site wide.

Mailboxes are not created until they are required.
Public and system folders will take a while to replicate to the new server once you have configured the replication.
Mailboxes don't replicate on their own, they have to be moved using the move mailbox wizard.

There isn't really a way that you check it is working until some data has (or hasn't) made it across. Message tracking helps to some degree as the replication traffic sticks out in the tracking logs (the email address is in upper case and is something like SERVERNAME-IS@DOMAIN.LOCAL).
