W2000 AD Replication Problem

I have a multi-segment network, 5 subnets with 2 W2k DC?s on separate subnets, that has no AD replication occurring. When I attempt to force manual AD replication using ?AD Sites and Services? I receive the following message in a pop-up windows named ?Replicate Now?: ?The following error occurred during the attempt to synchronize the domain controllers: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.? Nothing gets logged in Event Viewer, DC replication does not occur and the only option I have available is to click ?OK? on the pop-up windows. Has anyone encountered this problem and if so any success in fixing it? Thanks RWJ

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello,

One thing I would check is that you have properly mapped your various subnets to a site in AD Sites and Services. ADS&S uses this information for AD replication. There is a nice tool called Replmon.exe that is part of the W2K resource kit or can be downloaded from Microsoft which will check your replication topology and draw out the results for you in easy to read graphic. You will be able to better identify your problem spots and then can focus on those areas.

Hopefully that helps!

Good luck!

    From what the error is telling you, I would recommend you to check you have enabled the two domains as "trusted", I haven't done this on W2K but on WNT you had to make both domain controllers trust each other before trying to replicate users... Hope this helps.

    do the DCs see each other? If not, could be as simple as adding a route...
