NTDS replication error 1862

This is the replication status for the following directory partition on the local domain controller.

Directory partition: DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=mcsenetworks,DC=net

The local domain controller has not received replication information from a number of domain controllers in other sites within the configured latency intverval.

Number of domain controllers: 1
Latency Interval (Hours): 24

The latency interval can be modified with the following registry key.

Registry Key:  
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters\Replicator latency error interval (hours)

To identify the domain controllers by name, install the support tools included on the installation  CD and run dcdiag.exe. You can also use the support tool repadmin.exe to display the replication latencies of the domain controllers in the forest. The command is "repadmin /showvector /latency <partition-dn>".

this is what shows up here and there. the last time i received such a message was a few months ago.

now its back again. whre could be the problem?

have you tried using replmon to manually push replication?  Also can you log onto the server and open up support tools cmd line  (if they aren't installed you can download support tools from microsoft) and type repadmin /showreps  and post the results.  

other things you can post for us to diagnose would be dcdiag /v and netdiag /v

what confuses me is that there are two different time servers. shouldnt be there only one?

My mistake, I thought you had an old server in there.  Assuming no firewall rule changes, possibly a physical layer issue?
