AD replication error

After a small troubleshooting i came to understand that there is a replication failure happening from DC3 to DC1 and DC1 to DC3. The error message is as follows:-

The following error occurred during the attempt to synchronize naming context DomainDnsZones.contoso.com from Domain Controller DC3 to DC1. Insufficient attributes were given to create an object.This object may not exist because it may have been deleted and already garbage collected.This operation will not continue.

The current AD Infrastructure of our company consists of 3 Domain Controllers as follows:-
1)      DC01:-
      Server Name:-DC01
      Architecture:-Physical Server
      Operating System Installed: - Windows Server 2008 SP1 Standard Edition
      Server type: - 32-bit
      Antivirus Installed:- McAfee VirusScan Enterprise +Antispyware Enterprise
      Domain Functional Level:- Windows Server 2008
      Flexible Single Operations Masters (FSMO) running:-PDC Emulator and Relative Identifier (RID) Master
      Server Roles Installed:-
      DNS
      DHCP
      Global Catalog (GC)

2) DC02:-
      Server Name:-DC02
      Architecture:-Physical Server
      Operating System Installed: - Windows Server 2008 SP1 Standard Edition
      Server type: - 32-bit
      Antivirus:- McAfee VirusScan Enterprise +Antispyware Enterprise
      Domain Functional Level:- Windows Server 2008
      Flexible Single Operations Masters (FSMO) running:-Domain Naming and Schema Master
       Server Roles Installed:-

3) DC03:-
      Server Name:-DC03

No, it would not make a difference.
a) If Firewalls are enabled on the servers or between networks, that can cause replication issues. The speed of the network can slow replication, so I would then use Sites to control how often replication occurs between sites.

If you do not have any Read only Domain Controllers in your AD site, then you can safely ignore this error and the errors only occurs when you have not run adprep /rodcprep.

Hello Experts,

For your detailed examination and troubleshooting purpose i am also attaching you the output of the command C:\>DcDiag /s:DC01   .  

Note:-for security reason i just modify my actual domain name with contoso.com

Did you run DCdiag from a workstation or the server itself?

Sometimes, that the NCSecDesc errors are due to RODC (Read Only DCs) schema has not been configured and it can produce this error when DCdiag is run from workstations.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I run the DCDiag command from the domain controller named DC01.

 
By the way i have a question, when DC01 is in 32-Bit and DC03 in 64-Bit is this will cause any problem for replication ?
