In the process of doing a swing migration, I discovered that the old server wouldn't replicate to the new one.

Running dcdiag i discovered this error message:

 Starting test: kccevent
    An Warning Event occured.  EventID: 0x80000785
       Time Generated: 10/29/2008   21:32:32
       Event String: The attempt to establish a replication link for

Guess this is the problem, although I also found this one:

 Starting test: Services
       IsmServ Service is stopped on [SRV1]

Anybody have an idea of how to get rid of it (or just work around it in some way or another)?

Can you just confirm if the times are in sync on both DCs, common causes of this type of problem can be if the times are 5 minutes or more out of sync.  Then I'd check DNS etc (maybe check DNS servers on both), but I'm not sure how the lmserv service could be related as it is to do with licensing (i'd be interested to hear why DCDIag checks it though if anyone knows).

I also wonder if a new server points to itself for DNS, but can't find another DC to update itself, then it might have issues, so maybe I'd point the new server to the old one for DNS for a the time being if it's not already.

There should be no other domain servers running there now. I can try to remove the traces of them from AD on the old server.

Thanks FourBeers!

Guess I solved it by removing all references to the failed temporary domain controllers I'd added.

Regards,
