How Do I Get My Domain Controllers To Replicate
We are on a Win2000 domain :sigh:
and we are going to be upgrading soon, but I'm not holding my breath for it to happen in the next month or two... anyways...
1 of our 3 domain controllers is not replicating with the other 2.
Domain Controller 1 = dns server (seems to be working fine)
Domain Controller 2 = replicates with Server 1, but is not brining down policies created on Server 1
Domain Controller 3 = doesnt replicate with either 1 or 2
I notice that when I run ping commands to the 3 servers by name, my responses are show as:
PINGING server1.domain [ip address] with 32 bytes of data
PINGING server2.domain [ip address] with 32 bytes of data
but when I ping the 3rd server, which is the one that isn't replicating at all, I get
PINGING server3 [ip address] with 32 bytes of data (its missing the 'domain')
Is this telling me that something is hosed in the DNS table, and possibly a reason why this DC is not replicating?
If so, can someone expalin how to go into the DNS and correct it for this server?
I've seen my boss go in and work in DNS, but I dont think I've ever done it myself.
And my boss has been sitting on this for weeks and won't look into it and I'm getting fustrated because I need this DC to be replicating. I think it is causing a great many of problems for us....
Thanks in advance for any tips you can share.
