kcc duplicate auto generated connections

Our primary site was taken offline temporarily for power maintenance, about 24 hours. AD is setup correctly with site links & has been working fine for some time now.

Brought the main site back up today & the kcc on a remote site created what looks like duplicate connections to the same servers. Replication is working fine as far as I can tell but still seems strange.

I thought kcc might clear out these extra connections but its been about 12 hours and they are still there. Is this something to be concerned about?

The duplicate connection objects might be get created due to replication delays, latencies

Ensure that appropriate sites are added in respective site links, remove unnecessary sites from site links and then delete all duplicate connection objects
Then right click Ntds Settings and click on "Check replication topology" which should restore fresh connection objects

Thanks!

I found a couple DCs which were pointing to the offline site for DNS, instead of themselves which may have messed a few things up.
After deleting the connections & running repadmin /kcc everything seems to be back to normal.
