NTDS Replication Errors
Posted on 2009-07-13
I have recently started looking after a network that has 2 servers running. The first is a Windows SBS2003 Server and the second is Windows 2003 Standard Server.
My main concern with these servers is the presence of these errors in the logs:
Directory Service Log - NTDS Replication Error Event ID 1864
Directory Service Log - NTDS Replication Warning Event ID 2092
The NTDS Replication Warning Event ID 2092 error suggests running repadmin /showrepl as a diagnostic step and it returns 16472 CONSECUTIVE FAILURES since 2007-09-04 17:24:54 and as the 2003 Standard server was installed with its OS on the 2007-09-06 I am lead to believe that the replication has never worked.
I havent worked with replication before but think in this situation that it would be safe to just disable it.
any advise would be appreciated
