I'm having some issues with AD replication. Our configuration was done by two separate vendors that I'm not sure they agreed on how to setup the different sites and link. This is what I have:

One main site in Phoenix with 3 DC's. One of these have the FSMO roles.
We have over 15 sites with DC's on them. The network is not fully routed so I need all these sites to replicate back to the Phoenix location.
All servers are Server 2003.
When I create an object on the DC in Phoenix I can see the changes in the others sites DC's but if I do a change in one of those sites I don't always see the changes back in Phoenix.
If I do a replmon from Phoenix I see that everything is replicating but I know that's not the case.
We have links configured in AD using IP. All sites are configured to use the same link as they all have similar DSL connections.
Not all the servers at the site are configured as bridgeheads. (I wonder if that's the problem)
At the Event Viewer in Phoenix I have a bunch of 1865, 1311 & 1566 entries.

I know something is not right but I'm not sure where to start to look at. I tried to document here as much information as I think could help you experts out there. Most likely I miss something. Please let me know and I'll do my best to provide the info. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.
