hello, i have 2 sites connected thru vpn


site1-DCC
site2-WS

i have enabled replication between the 2 namespaces of each site. and the DCC clients go to the DCC namspace, but then i try to access the WS namespace it sends me to the DCC namespace instead of the local one.

this was working fine, and nothing changed, so im not sure what could have happened.

file replication between the 2 namespacs works ok.

ive tried to force the referal to the clients, and even doing a registry key on the DC to force the clients to use the logonDC location for the namespace referal but nothing seems ro work.

both dc's are 08r2 servers with latest updates.

Do you have two separate Active Directory Sites configured?  Are the subnets properly listed for each of the sites?

i do get the following on the dfs diag command, one for every DC in my domain. ipv6 is disabled on the nic cards (vmware vm)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Warning: The server has IP addresses with conflicting site associations
Host name: dcc ad host
Site: ws
Domain controller: dcc ad
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Host IP address                         Subnet-SiteMapping in AD
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
::1                                     No mapping exists



and these on the dfs event viewer
