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.

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.
