The following error occured during the attempt to synchronize naming context from domain controller DPHFL-ADC-DR to domain Controller DPHFL-PDC001
The active directory can not replicate with this server because the time since last replication with this server has exceeded the tomestone life time.
The operation will not continue

    Sounds like they've only been talking one way for quite a while. Tombstone is what happens when a DC cannot communicate with another DC.

    Can you ping/trace both ways?
