I receive this error when I try to do a forced replication on one of my 3 DCs.

"The following error occurred during the attempt to synchronize naming context reom Domain Controller HP-DC1:

    Can you ensure that the file replication service is set to automatic on all the servers

    also the Windows Time service doesn't appear to be started

    run this command at DC1

    repadmin /options dc1 -DISABLE_INBOUND_REPL

    repadmin /options dc1 -DISABLE_OUTBOUND_REPL

    & then try replicating

    I would recommend you might have to remove one of the Domain Controllers by running a metadata cleanup to remove the server from the domain

    Run dcdiag post results

    Seems like the DC is  corrupt.

    1. dcpromo /forceremoval
    2. Run metadata cleanup on existing working DC.
    3. Delete all DNS records for the failed DC.

    From here you can re-promote the failed DC.
