When using a Windows XP Pro. workstation to modify folder security rights on one of three domain controllers, Server Number One and Number Two are okay; however, when attempting to manage the files and folder permissions on Server Number Three, an error id encountered when trying to browse the directory lsit for users. This does not occur if we work locally on Server Number Three.
The RPC serviceis running on the server and we checked the DNS server, and Server Number Three is listed correctly in both reverse and forward lookups.
Note: When using Active Directory Sites and Services-
1. Drill down to "..Servers/Server Number Three/NTDS Settings", and then one at a time, right clicking on Server Number One and Server Number Two, and then selecting "Replicate Now". This works OKAY!
2. Drill down to "..Servers/Server Number One/NTDS Settings", and then one at a time, right clicking on Server Number Two and Three and selecting "Replicate Now". This works Only for Server Number Two, Number Three displays the following error message:
The following error occurred during the attempt to contact the domain controller GGOSERVER02:
The RPC server is unavailable.
This condition may be caused by a DNS lookup problem. For information about troubleshooting common DNS lookup problems, please see the following Microsoft Web site:
This problem only appered within the last month or two, can not recall if I may have inadvertantly changed a system setting.
