    Replication between DC's failing

    This has been a re-ocuring problem for a while now. It was realy bad at one point but the last few months its been pretty fine, until this week where its failing again.

    Anyway when i goto AD Sites & Services and do a manual replication i get the "RPC server unavailible - this may be a DNS lookup problem"

    This may be from one server to the other but fine the opposite way. Or today its working in both directions apart from when i remote desktop to one of teh DC's and it doesnt work one way. So effectively out of 4 possible connections 3 are fine and 1 fails.

    I can normally correct this problem by restarting all or a few of the services; DNS server
    File Replication
    RPC Locator


    Any idea's? We were hoping this may be a commmen problem thats fixed by SP1. I think im going to get one DC uped to SP1 tommorow, but until then does anyone have any clue whats going on?

    Netdiag and dcdiag from microsoft downloads should be your first port of call this should highlight any issues hopefully.
