Active directory replication problem

hamed_masoud asked
Last Modified: 2015-06-24

my PDC failed and i restored it from a backup (No BDC), once restore is completed, i see no replication takes place between my PDC and any of the child domains. from sites and services i receive the message saying :

the following error occurred during the attempt to synchronize naming context (child domain) to the domain controller ROOTPDC:
the naming context is in the process of being removed or is not replicated from the specific server.

this operation will not continue.

I have many child domains and it gives the same error for every single one of them. any idea why this happens or how to solve it?
