kerebos errors usually have to do with time being off between the client and the server (>15 Minutes Difference)

As David mentioned, it is usually caused by timing issues. Check the time and more importantly the timezone settings on your server and clients.

now i get an error message of
Windows cannot create the object <user> because: The directory service was unable to allocate a relative identifier.
I know this was a replication issue
I had 2 DC's  
I had to power off the second DC and do a system state restore to the Primary DC to reestablish the objects in AD.

can i wipe out the reference to the secondary AD and make the system think it has only the Primary DC and establish full functionality. If so how?  
 If i can i would reformat the secondary DC and reinstall the OS and rejoin to domain and once again make it DC at that point.

If i can not wipe out the secondary DC, how do i force the secondary DC to accept replication from the primary DC alone ( one way replication)  and block the replication of the secondary DC info up to the primary DC.
i believe the secondary DC may have been faulty and pushed old AD info up to the primary DC which initiated all the issues.
Thanks in advance

Have you transferred all the FSMO roles to this dc?
