New AD site won't replicate AD
Posted on 2009-03-31
I am connected to a new location over a hardware vpn. My main domain is 192.168.0.x. The new site is 192.168.20.x. I made a new site in AD. I DCpromo'd the server at the new location and after some work, was able to join clients to the domain at the new location. I have corresponding dns forwarders at each location forwarding to each other. I had it so I could ping by name from the main office to the new server and could ping the client only by ip at the new location. I could ping everything by name from the client at the new location back to the main office. Basically, it's all screwed up now . Because the AD sites and services wouldn't replicate we dcpromo'd the new server back down, changed it's name and ip and dcpromo'd back up again. Same result everywhere. I almost want to start from scratch but I feel like it's too late. I am hoping it is just a DNS adjustment somewhere.
