  • Are there any firewalls running between the DC's?

    Run diagnostics against your Active Directory domain.

    If you don't have the support tools installed, install them from your server install disk.
    d:\support\tools\setup.exe

    Run dcdiag and repadmin in verbose mode.
    -> DCDIAG /V /C /D /E /s:yourdcname > c:\dcdiag.log
    -> repadmin.exe /showrepl dc* /verbose /all /intersite > c:\repl.txt
    -> ntfrsutl ds your_dc_name > c:\sysvol.log
    -> dnslint /ad /s "ip address of your dc"

    **Note: Using the /E switch in dcdiag will run diagnostics against ALL dc's in the forest. If you have significant numbers of DC's this test could generate significant detail and take a long time. You also want to take into account slow links to dc's will also add to the testing time.

    If you download a gui script I wrote it should be simple to set and run (DCDiag). It also has the option to run individual tests without having to learn all the switch options. The details will be output in notepad text files that pop up automagically.

    The script is located on my website at http://www.pbbergs.com/windows/downloads.htm

    Just select both dcdiag and netdiag make sure verbose is set. (Leave the default settings for dcdiag as set when selected)

    When complete search for fail, error and warning messages.
