sysvol and PGO replicating or not

How can I verify if sysvol and GPO is replicating between domain controllers. I know they did replicate before as they were on the same site but since moving to another remote site I am not sure. I can see the dates on the sysvol folder are the same between the domain controllers. I am also curious as I know GPO's have been changed in the past few weeks yet the dates on the sysvol folder for policies have not. Its 2003 domain.,

Ant update? Did you tried dissabling (temporally) software firewall on servers? If you are using some hardware firewalls -did you forward all necessary ports -checked nat policy? Also try "netstat -an" to see open/listening ports.  dissabling hips antivirus software temporally just to exclude it from potential causes. Any vlans on the system?

what are you using to replicate

still fsr or did you upgrade domain to dfsr?
to check replication run that on domain controllers (from cmd runned as administrator)
repadmin /showrepl
repadmin /replicate
repadmin /syncall

if it detects some errors try that

repadmin /removelingeringobjects

when I run showrepl, the output is broken down into a few different sections, on the first section it shows 3 replications for different guid numbers, the first one is successful the second one a minute before failed and the third was for about ten days ago failed.
other sections are similar but I am unsure of exactly what I am looking for

can you paste it here?

right click and press mark then press enter then press paste in ee (redact sensitive information and possibly change domainnames to something else)
