I had an earlier post concerning setting permissions on a shared folder, it seems that i've opened a larger can of worms.  I have a PDC in xcity, ohio, I recently set up 2 other domain controllers for the same domain in xcity, michigan and ycity, ohio.  The one in michigan is giving me the 13508 error and is the one i am having problems, setting permissions, mapping drives, having all workstations show up in network neighborhood etc.  I checked the NTDS settings on the problem DC and it shows that it is replicating TO the PDC and nothing in the replicate from.  Are all my issues coming from the FRS or is it a router/network issue.  I can ping the FQDN of the PDC and everything works fine that way.  I run Repadmin /showres and everything seems to complete successfully.   I am very frustrated that this isn't working. Have the one set up in ycity, ohio exactly the same role and everything works fine.  Please help and thanks in advance for your help
