DCPROMO Replication Issue

Need some help!
Our company network only has 1 domain controller, running W23Stnd R2. I installed on another server W23 Stnd R2 and gave it an IP of an old member server 192.168.100.15.  When I ran DCPROMO, as an additional DC in an existing domain, not all the OU's and Contents came over to the new server???

Update: I ran DCPROMO to remove the server as a DC back to a member server. Removed DNS, and then restarted.  In the event logs, it was complaining about MSTDC security settings in Component Services. I enabled it and tried running DCPROMO again, this time without DNS installed.  Problem same,  but no warnings are in Event Viewer. (I let this sit overnight in case replication is slow) All computers and users were replicated over as before, but not all OU's Im missing about 12 to be exact, and those OU's have other containers.

If I RDP into (original)DC1, and I right click on ADUC, Connect to another Domain ControllerDC2, I can't see the OU's . If I RDP into DC2 and perform the same, I can see all the OU's.

Anyone have any ideas?

First thing dcpromo the server then run a metadata cleanup.

Go through DNS to make sure you have removed all DNS entries for this server and the IP address you are using.

Point the server to the existing DC for DNS.

Run dcpromo then promote the server. The replication run for an hour or so then check to the DC.
