Policies not replicating between DCs

    Question

  • I have two DCs...Server 2012. I see that one DC has some different folders under Policies than the other. The key names are different and the folder dates are different. How do I fix this?

  • I restarted the File Replication Service and the folders synced up.  I see past 13508 warnings in the FRS Event log suggesting that this failure might re-occur again shortly.  The servers were just rebooted 3 days ago so I think it's odd that I had to restart the FRS service to correct it.  The DCDiag was good.  Everything passed with no fails on both servers.  Repadmin was also good on both servers.  I may need to do the non authoritative restore if this keeps happening.  I will post back.  Thanks!

  • check replication properly and do a non authoritative restore

  • Hello,

    please use the support tools and check the DCs/domain. If you think we should also have a look into this then please UPLOAD the following files:

    ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.log [all DCs]
    dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:dcname >c:\dcdiag.log
    repadmin /showrepl dc* /verbose /all /intersite >c:\repl.log  ["dc* is a place holder for the starting name of the DCs if they all begin the same (if more then one DC exists)]
    dnslint /ad /s "DCipaddress" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321045)
    ADREPLSTATUS: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30005 can also be exported to file.

    As the output will become large, DON'T post them into the thread, please use Windows Sky Drive(with open access!) https://onedrive.live.com and add the link from it here. Also the /e in dcdiag scans the complete forest, so better run it on COB.
