NTDS Replication problem

Posted on 2012-09-19
Last Modified: 2012-09-26

Our company has several offices. Every office has a Domain Controller that replicates with a DC in Amsterdam. All machines are Windows 2008 Server R2.

In the Paris office i've created a child domain. I want the DC in the child domain to replicate with the Paris DC only, and not with the DC in Amsterdam.  There is no routing between Amsterdam and the Paris child domain subnet possible.

On the Amsterdam DC replication errors pop up in the Directory Service eventlog, indicating that DC1 cannot replicate with DC3 (see pic). In Active Directory Sites and Services, in the Amsterdam site, the DC's from Paris child domain are automatically added as replication partner. I removed them and turned of 'bridge all site links', but they are still comming back.

bridge all site links
How can I fix this problem? How can I get rid of the automatically generated replication? How can I be sure that DC2 only replicates with DC1? And that DC3 only replicates with DC2?

Thanks in advance!
