Windows Server 2003
[dt]Added second Windows Server 2003 DC (DC2) to single domain (AD, File Server, DNS Server, GC Role on both DCs) / (DCPROMO run) Intended for DC2 to be replica of main DC (DC1) / same OS on both. Same domain, same building, no firewall between, only a switch. Different IP's, DC1 is primary in all cases. All DNS (pings, tests) pass: DC1 to DC2, and DC2 to DC1. AD changes replicate quickly. Contents of sysvol on DC1: 3 policy folders did not replicate to DC2. DC2 created 1 policy which DID replicate to DC1 so now DC1 has all 4. Many tests run, hundreds of pages, so only *test name* run and *failures* follow: (all DC2) ---------------------------------dcdiag (DC2) Netlogons: "Unable to connect to the NETLOGONS share! (DC2netlogon) An net use or LsaPolicy operation failed with error 1203. No network provider accepted the given network path" -- Advertising test fails with "Warning: DsGetDcName returned information for DC1 when trying to reach DC2.

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

May be check your <b>sysvol</b> location on two DCs, those must be at the same place for example if DC1 sysvol is in C:\sysvol and DC2 sysvol is in D:\sysvol replication can be fail.
If this is the problem you must reinstall DC2.
