We are using windows server 2003 and having problems with FRS.  We are receiving the following error.  

The following error occurred duringthe attempt to synchronize the naming context %domainname% from the domain controller %servername% to domain controller %servername%. the naming context is in the process of being removed or is not replicated from the specified server.  

Our Primary domain controller has been down for five hours please help!!!

Hi Josefah,

Did you run dcdiag on the Primary DC?

What are the event ids?

Did you try to transfer the fsmo roles to your backup DC?

First can you check the event viewer for what error you are getting?
From your DC run this command and check whether any error found.
DCDIAG /D /C /V
NETDIAG /DEBUG /V

Also manually try to replicate from dssite.msc -----ntds settings---replicate now.

The events are just saying cannot connect with DC01.

We have already run a DCDIAG /debug /v

Also we have already manually replicated.

no luck

We are getting the error when running a DCDIAG /e

The above error is now fixed after giving administrators permissions to domain controllers in AD.

now we are getting the folling error in DCDIAG

 Starting test: frsevent
    There are warning or error events within the last 24 hours after the
    SYSVOL has been shared.  Failing SYSVOL replication problems may cause
    Group Policy problems.

To monitor and find issues with frs you can also use these two tools.

Can you run repadmin /showreps and post the errors it returns?
