HI,

We have two AD Controllers KOS and RHODOS. Due to migration of our VmWare ESXi servers
From 4.1 to 5.1 we moved RHODOS to Vmware EXI 5.1 and get the following errors on rhodos :
       
       
repadmin /replsummary /sort:delta  
netdom query /domain:wegaworld.local fsmo

Open in new window

     
	Experienced the following operational errors tryping to retrieve replication information
	58 - kos.wegaworld.local

Open in new window

     

Any Suggestions ?

need to check couple of things

1) check if any Firewall is not blocking
2) check if DNS entry is correct on new server

if both are fine then check it out this link

well it was a clone and I moved the vm, not copied it.. so i think its not a firewall or dns problem or ?... maybe some windows updates...

repadmin /replsum nearly the same

repadmin /replsum

Okay, the IP Address or Network Interface has not changed in the VM?

Check all network information has not changed.

can you ping via fqdn both DCs from each other?

what is output from DCDIAG

58 - kos.wegaworld.local error 58 refers to manually created connection objects under Sites and Services. It also refers AD related ports are blocked / filtered at Firewall / router / Switch.

If there is a manually created connections there, then delete them and let KCC take care of it. Run repadmin /kcc * to fix it. If AD related ports are blocked, check with PortQryUI to know exact issue.

RPC server Unavailable

Yes it is, but you will see after 4 hours, if you have no continued rteplication errors.

We always like to wait, doublecheck and check afterwards, if everything is replicating ok.
