I think *this* is an issue with your DNS...the domain cementhai.com seems to have ns1(/2/3/4/5/6)..cementhai.co.th as its name servers, are these not windows servers?

Using .com DNS is usually a problem w/active directory, recommended to use .local instead.  You might want to repost w/more points and put it as DNS/Active Directory and see what people have to say but how long have you had this problem?  How long has this child domain been up?

Hi Datedman,
Thanks for ur comments, we dont have acees to the  child domain "npigroup.cementhai.com" on replication failed  and this problem exists past 2 -3 months..

I want to ensure that from "Root Domain" Cementhai.com and child domain dc (PPGDC01)  replication and DNS settings are proper.. if so i will ask the administrtaor of that child domain look in to the issue.

Pls let me know the steps i have to check from my root domain and the child domain ( PPG).

Hi Datedman,
I could see error in "repadmin " output on child domain dc ppgdc01 for the below servers,

Source: BP-PPB\PPGBPDC01
******* 131 CONSECUTIVE FAILURES since 2009-06-08 22:56:54
Last error: 8606 (0x219e):Can't retrieve message string 8606 (0x219e), error 1815.

Source: WS-PPB\PPGWSDC01
******* 133 CONSECUTIVE FAILURES since 2009-06-08 16:56:59
Last error: 8606 (0x219e):Can't retrieve message string 8606 (0x219e), error 1815.

I have checked the repadmin on that 2 servers "PPGBPDC01, PPGWSDC01" which seems fine to ppgdc01 , then i dont understand why it shows failure from PPGDC01.

I will attach the repadmin ouputs,

The root domain needs to delegate the child domain(s) to the correct server(s).
http://blog.kovyrin.net/2006/03/06/how-to-delegate-subdomain/

I'm guessing the servers for the main domain are not running Windows but this URL is generic.

Commented:
Sorry those repadmin logs are wrapped and pretty tough to decipher besides the fact that i haven't ever used the program. :)  Check the FRS logs tho please...

hi Datedman,
I'm not clear with ur suggestions,

I'm guessing the servers for the main domain are not running Windows  ---> could u pls explain bcoz the root domain is running windows server 2003 only..

i have checked nslookup and ping requests from the server PPGDC01 its fine and no frs errors reported on the ppgbpdc01,ppgwsdc01 .
Error is only on PPGDC01.
