Many documents are replicated, for no good reason

Hi,

The situation:
- one database X
- two servers, A and B, two different Domino domains
- one Notes client PC
- there's a replica of X on A and B, and on the client
- the servers don't replicate, they're not cross-certified
- the client is certified in both domains
- the client replicates often (in the background) with server A, to test modifications to the design
- every now and then, the client replicates with server B
- as long as the client replicates with 1 server, replication is fast
- once the client switches to the other server and does a manual replication, many documents seem to have been modified (50%)

I assume it's not a rights issue, since both servers are in the ACL as Manager and the user is Manager as well.

1. Explanation??
2. Solution, except from cross-certifying both servers??

Some day the servers will be cross-certified, but I want to make sure that they don't keep on replicating the same documents over and over again...

Could there be a date time difference between the servers and replciation history is not picking up the right check date.
Also it isn't deletion stubs that are getting replicated by any chance.

Time difference: it's possible, I'd have to check. One server is Windows, the other Linux. I'm a little worried about the Windows server...

If you combione the following entries into your client Notes.ini you shoul be able to see which documents are replicating and therefore work out what may have changed. Works on R7/R8 basic clients not tried on 8.5+

Debug_Outfile=C:\TEMP\DEBUG.TXT
Debug_Console=1
Debug_Repl_All=1
LOG_REPLICA=5
Client_Clock=1

It was caused by an agent that was still active... The help offered was helpful in getting closer to the solution.
