Have you verified that AD replication is working? Take a look at the link below for additional troubleshooting.

did that ,it dosent help much

Commented:
OK. I assume that means that Active Directory replication is working as expected, and you can ping each DC by FQDN from the opposite machine.

How large is the NetLogon folder? How long has it been failing to replicate?

Commented:
few days,the folder has a few batch files

Hi,

Are there any errors in the System Log or the Directory Services Log related to host resolution?  Also, are the DCs exactly in synch with their time?

Often, replication errors can be tracked down by errors that appear following DC System restart.  Is it possible to restart one of these DCs and then look in all the logs for related errors?

Good Luck,

Hi,

Are you familiar with the DCDiag utility?  This can reveal some possible issues.

A good reference is at:

If it shows any errors reply back with those.

Good Luck,

Please post ipconfig /all and dcdiag these will help troubleshoot the problem.
changed the "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" parameter to 1 and it solve the problem
