  • Hi,
    Please check if the DC could reach each other and check if there is firewall blocking and causing the issue.
    You could have a try to find any event log and run the following command tools on each domain controller to see if we could get more information to help troubleshooting the problem.
    -> DCDIAG /V /C /D /E /s: dcname > c:\dcdiag.log , 
    -> repadmin.exe /showrepl dc* /verbose /all /intersite > c:\repl.txt
    Here is a similar thread, you could refer to more details:
