I have attached a message I get when forcing replication on my AD server. This only happens when I force replication with one server. The others work fine and are successful. I am not sure that this is successful or failing. I suspect it is completing the sync. My goal is to actually remove this server from AD in the near future but need to know if that would even be successful seeing this error coming up.

This is not an error as Santosh states. AD is just telling you the the two servers are in different sites where the sync might take some time. Sync between sites usually occurs every 15 minutes (depends also on type of informatino that is being synced). No worrie, removing this one should cause no issues.

Event log has a few errors but it is the normal stuff. DCDIAG /V came up with all passing in every area.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

That's not an error message.  It says the replication is in progress.

It is standard message box for healthy replication state by design for AD replication check between TWO sites

Error messages are different
