Replication problems with one of my DC's in Windows 2003 AD setup

I have a global Windows 2003 Domain spanning around the world. We had added another DC in Canada at the end of last year. Apparently we are having some major replication problems. I setup a user in NY and it never replicated to Canada. It replicated to all other DC's. We have firewall VPN tunnels between all of our offices. I tested through PING, Telnet to all AD, FRS ports and there is no connection problems. I ran DCDIAG and clearly this server is having issues. I am getting tomestone errors. Can someone help??

Did you opened all the necessary ports (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727063.aspx) in firewall:

I needto confirm something about the following command:

repadmin /removelingeringobjects ServerName ServerGUID DirectoryPartition /advisory_mode

Where it says "servername" is that a Domain controller that is OK but cannot communicate with the 1 server?

CANFS01 is the server that no one can replication too
USAFS01 is 1 example of a server that is working but cannot communicate with CANFS01

So does this look right? the GUID is for CANFS01

repadmin /removelingeringobjects usafs01.domain.com 14af2539-ff69-4eae-9470-656569170b8d dc=domain,dc=com /advisory_mode

I do not want to create any additional probkems.

I also was wondering what you thought about demoting this DC and re-promoting it?

DCPROMO wont work because of the tomestone problem but what about DCPROMO/forceremove
Do I need to do a metadata cleanup too?

We were able to remove it and re-add it back into the domain which solved the problem.
