I have 10 domain controllers at 5 geographic sites two at each location.
There is one DC which is not replicating.
The other DCs are saying there is a tombstone error and log an Event ID 2042 error.
How do I get the one DC so it is working again without having to demote/promote it.

You need too take a look at the replication issues also possibly clean up lingering objects.

The link above should tell you how to get there.

Creating the "Allow Replication With Divergent and Corrupt Partner" value and setting to a 1 on the destination DC got replication working from the source to the destination again. Reset it back to 0 afterward and replication still is working.
