I am getting Event ID 1863 on two 2003 servers in same domain.  Server A is in location A.  Server B is in location B.  The VPN that connected these two was down for about one month.  Now the VPN is back up and I can't get them to sync.  Any suggestions?

check in dssite.msc if the site link and connection object between A and B are still there. You can also delete the connection objects from both sides, then re-run KCC to discover the topology. (right click on dc, all tasks, check knowledge...something)

if KCC runs fine, everything should be back shortly
otherwise, post back the error message of KCC.

actually before you do above, you can try "repadmin /syncall" all both DCs, hopefully, if all connection objects still there and all needed ports are open, this should bring them in sync.
