@geodash - no it is not running Hyper-V. Let me check the articles...
Are you dns records set up correctly? (DC1: Primary: DC2, Secondary DC1; DC2: Primary DC1; Secondary: DC2).

Can you post ipconfig /all from both servers?

Have you ever get negative ping times? If so try add /usepmtimer to your boot.ini (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/895980/en-us?fr=1)
