DFS error share not accessible

Greetings, I have set up a DFS between two Windows 2008R2 servers. One is the PDC and the other is a DC.

I have one namespace which is domain.local. Both server are part of the namespace SRV1 and SRV2

I have then set up a replication of folder "Operations" and folder "Usagers" pointing to both server. All user have read access to the DFS share and modify on Operations and Usagers share.

I have some random trouble to access \\domain.local\DFS\Usagers share. I have the following error message:
"\\domain.local\DFS\usagers is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. "


The DFS is working flawlessly on the \\domain.local\DFS\Operations share.
I can access \\srv1\usagers
I can access \\srv2\usagers
I can access \\srv2\DFS\operations but I can't on usagers
I can access \\srv1\DFS\operations but I can't on usagers.

I checked the share and both folder (Operations and Usagers) have the same right.

I have several event ID 4302 DFSR warning but I think it's because the file is open when the replication start. And anyway it points on a file in the operations folder...

Any idea ?

To give you more information, I rebooted both servers yesterday and now I can not access the \\domain.local\dfs\usagers from both server and all the domain computers.

Why the ACTIVE TARGET are not always the same ?
