Windows 2012 DC replication issue
Posted on 2014-02-28
I getting the following error on one of my DC's and it is preventing it from being replicated to:
Event ID: 1925
The attempt to establish a replication link for the following writable directory partition failed.
Source directory service:
Source directory service address:
Intersite transport (if any):
This directory service will be unable to replicate with the source directory service until this problem is corrected.
Verify if the source directory service is accessible or network connectivity is available.
8259 A referral loop was detected by the client.
When I look in Sites and Services I see that for reason or another I see the its own server name listed under the NTDS Settings. When I go and delete it then it automatically recreates itself.
I am able to force replicate this server to the main dc but the main dc is unable to replicate with this server stating that the server is in the process of being removed.
On the server with the issue I also something that I have never seen before and that is that it has 2 NTDS settings for some reason. If I try to delete it then it wants to remove the entire server from Sites And Services
