DC is unable to connect to the Sysvol on its replication partner

Hi Experts,

One of our domain controller DC1 is unable to connect to the Sysvol on its replication partner DC2 in a different site. I can access \\sysvol folder of the DC2 from DC1. Not sure which event ID I should check in event viewer. Could someone please advice me on how to approach this problem?

Many thanks,
Anupam

What error do you get when you try to connect (you should get a pop up error box) manually?

I've received this error through HP-openview alert. When I checked using Replmon I found that they are replicating perfectly. I've also checked the connection object for both of them, and those objects are also in healthy state.

Is there any way to specifically know whether Sysvol was replicated or not?

Thanks a lot for your help.

From each server, Click Start... Run... type in the name of the other server \SysVol.  For example:

From DC1: Start... Run... "\\DC2\SysVol"
From DC2: Start... Run... "\\DC1\SysVol"

That will let you know if you actually have the connection errors that your HP software is reporting.  If replmon is showing healthy replication, then you are probably fine.  You can manually do a size/file count against the two shares if you want to double check...

Thanks a lot for your help! I've already completed the share access from the other server, sysvol share is accessable from either of the servers. Also as advised by you, I've done the counting and it is giving me same statistics. So there is no mismatch. I assume this would be a fault alert generated by OpenView software.

You can check the frs event log of DC & if there is no error you can ignore this alert it can be due to packet drop.
Type net share & sysvol & netlogon should be seen.

Hi Awinish,

Thanks a lot for the help. I've checked with net share command and now as per your advice I've also checked with the event log for FRS, and it's showing none. So, I hope this is a temporary problem.

Thanks once again. I'll assign the points.

Cheers,
Anupam
