Directory Replication errors

By tom_a_morris ·
I have 6 BDC's that are setup as "import" servers to receive logon scripts from my PDC, which is setup as the "export" server.

I find that 3 of the import servers are receiving changes fine. The other 3 import servers are not getting the updatesfrom the export server. In each case, the import servers are setup identically.

I have read all of the articles in Technet about the errors in the event viewer, such as Event I 3216, system 32 error, system 5 error, etc. I have tried all of that and still cannot correct the problem.

Does anyone have any other ideas that have worked for you when you encountered a problem such as this?

Directory Replication errors

You may have already done this, but I'll mention it anyway. By default, directory replication will not cross routers unless configured to do so in Server Manager. Highlight the server that will be replicating to the other servers, go to Computer ->Properties, and click the replication button. Manually add the servers you wish to send the scripts to in the Export To section. Repeat this process for the importing servers, except add the exporting server in the Import From section.

Hope that helps.

Double check the access permissions on the ..\NETLOGON\IMPORT\SCRIPTS directory of the BDCs experiencing this problem.

Check the Netlogon folder on the problem servers. I've been living with what I think is the same problem for awhile now. The only explanation I have found is in Technet artilcle Q132950 that discribes this as a nuisance. If in fact your Netlogon folders are not being updated, double check the Startup settings to insure you are using a Replicator account and password. Also make sure the "From List" on these servers contatins the name of the Master Replication server. I have seen replication work on some servers without this entry, but on others it did not work until I added the server to the "From List". You will want to stop and start the Directory Replication Service on those servers.

Hummm... last ditch effort....
In Server Manager click Replication then click Manage. What's the status reading?
Also, have you made a change to the script just to test a replication push?
Did you use the elipsis to add your Replicator id to theStartup Account ID?
Stop and restart Service.

Some good answers...

Me... I really don't like the replication service but I live with it...

Key things... Service account the same on all machines with the correct password? (this one gets ya everytime... so stop the replication service on all the machines.., change the password on the domain service account in user manager for domains, and then re-enter the account and password in the service properties on each DC..., then restart the services)

Check the NTFS permissions and the share permissions.

I use a script to do my replication manually... Seems antiquated but when I make changes I usually make lots of them.... so I have a master netlogon folder that I replicate to the export and import directories on all my DC's and member servers...
I do not have DC's on all my (52) WAN segments... so I use the member servers as a local segment netlogon file handler.... eg. the logon DC redirects the client back to it's local LAN segment to finish it's logon script.
