  • DC not replicating from primary

    Hello,

    I have 2x 2003 servers. on is SQL and the other is AD+Exchange

    I thought it would be a good idea to setup the SQL box as a backup DC for some FT.


    Basicly it all went ok - but i have recently noticed that when i have joind a PC to the domain its created it on the backup domain and doesnt replicate. if i create a user on either controller this doesnt replecate either?!

    Yet it isnt causing any issues!

    theres no event log warnings or problems so im rather confused. can someone please help?

      Can you see all the users/computers previously created in ADUC on both DCs?

                  Hi mordzy

                  Did you manually add any folders to DNS on either DC?

                  Is the "Register this connection's addresses in DNS" checkbox checked under the DNS tab of Advanced TCP/IP Settings checkbox Checked?

                    Re: DC not replicating from primary

                    I didnt manually add anything. just followed the wizard.

                    on the backup DC the "Register this connection's addresses in DNS" was not checked.

                    i have checked this, hasnt made any difference though

                    is there anything else i can check.

                    Thanks for the help

                      Its got to be a DNS problem I think.
