AD Delegation not working

I've delegated permissions so a user can replicate AD changes, but it's not working. It shows "Replication Access was denied."
 I used this link to add the delegation (also checked everything relating to Replication)
http://absolute-sharepoint.com/2012/12/step-by-step-guide-to-configure-the-replicating-directory-changes-for-sharepoint-2010-and-2013.html

If I add a user to the domain admins group they are able to replicate AD changes fine.

Take a look at the below KB article which outlines the steps to apply Replication Delegation.

Will,
I've already done this, but when through the ADSI steps just to verify the settings were still there.

Has your replication propagated to other DC's?

Use the below commands
repadmin /replsum
repadmin /showrepl

Also did you apply this to a group or a user? Did you get the user to logout and log back in?

Will - Looks like I'm getting RPC 1722 errors. When I check the DC that's causing it I also see event ID 2092. This is an older PC that we've used as a backup DC in case our DCs running as VMs go down. What about removing the FSMO roles from this  this server, demoting it and then setting up a new DC on newer equipment?

Does this DC hold the FSMO roles? If this is true and it is not reachable then this could definitely cause replication/syncing issues among the domain.

You need to get this DC back online and transfer the roles. If it is not reachable then you will need to seize the roles to another domain controller.

Will - I found the RPC issue. It was a problem with three of my DC/DNS servers. They all have secondary NICs. Once I took those out of DNS everything started to work, but when I tried to reapply replication permissions for the user it's still giving me access denied.
I removed the delegate rights for the user, did replication to all AD server then added delegate rights back and replicated to all servers again. I then rebooted the PC, logged in and tried running "Replicate Now" from Active Directory Sites and Services.

Is it working now? I would use the following commands to ensure replication is working among all DC's in the domain.

-repamdin /replsum
- repadmin /shworepl

also run dcdiag /v

Now when I run the following: (when run from Tempus)

repadmin /replsum (I get RPC errors on Tempus and SCCM-SA)
repadmin /showrepl ( get errors on SCCM-SA)

I've attached the results of dcdiag /v
ad-diag.txt

Based on your logs you have a DC that is not replicating Sysvol.

I would follow the link below to correct your FRS replication issue with one of your domain controllers.

Thanks Will. The article applies to Win2003. Will this work with Windows 2008 R2 or 2012 R2?
