    Question Ranger 2008R2 DCs aren't mirroring

    Hello all,
    I am having an issue with Ranger and/or Server 2008R2. We run our 2 DCs and other servers on a 2 ProLiant G7 ESXi cluster. The 2 DCs are running Ranger 7.3.3.1 and are set in load balance mode. We use Ranger to set shortcut layouts in the start menu and start menu for Students and Staff. Ranger should then mirror changes made to these folders to the other DC, the same with Ranger policies so users retain policies etc. no matter what their audit/config server is. However it is not copying at all. I am having to set policies and shortcuts manually on both DCs for it to work how I want it to. I'm not sure if it is a Ranger issue or 2008R2 issue. Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Jack

    Hi Jack,

    It sounds like the replication between the DCs is not working for whatever reason.
    Is DNS running OK? Can you ping between the servers?
    Providing this is OK, you can start a manual replication from Active Directory Sites and Services (assuming you can access this through Ranger?)

    Cheers, Ed

    Hi Ed, sorry for the delayed reply.
    I think this issue is with Ranger, both DCs can ping each other and active directory is replicating everything such as users, NETLOGON, SYSVOL etc fine. DNS is also working fine. I will contact our outside support firm who set it all up, I've only inherited it.
    Thanks for your help,
    Jack
