KCC Errors / Event ID 1865, 1311, 1566 - Active Directory

I have a single domain, multi site Active Directory setup and both remote Windows 2008 servers are full of Event ID 1865, 1311 and 1566 in the ADS logs.

All DC's are replicating fine (checked via NTDS) and I have modified the MTU to 1492 as I'm sure I have read on here somewhere and have rebooted the servers.

Can anyone advise on where  to go next?

OK, let's start first by running DCDIAG on all DC's, please post the results.

Do you have them all configured to use a valid Windows DNS server only?

Also, do you have all your Active Directory Sites and Services Sites and Subnets configured correctly?

From running DCDIAG I can see we have replication errors between the two remote sites that are causing the problems.

I'm not sure how to post the results of the logs as they are quite long?

All DC's are configured to use valid Windows DNS servers only.

I have configured AD sites and services subnets, etc correctly but AD automatically generated the links itself.

Can you run the following:

DCDIAG > C:\DCDIAG-COMPUTERNAME.TXT

Replace the computername with the name of the server and then upload the text files.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

And you have confirmed that both DC's are able to communicate with each other?

Can you run: dcdiag /test:connectivity

On both servers.  What are the results?

Hi,

How about you site links and site link bridging.

Do you have physically connectivity among all sites or it is it like hub - spoke topology.

Your site links should map you physical links. Please re verify site links

All fixed.

Re-created the IPSEC VPN tunnel between the remote sites and all of the errors have stopped.
