Repadmin /replicate command gives error DsReplicaSync() failed with status 8452 (0x2104)

Hi,

I am trying to use the Repamin command between two 2003 DCs in different
sites as part of a script for when I need replication to occur immediately.
Replication does work, and using AD Sites & Services can also successfully
initiate a replication both ways. No errors are reported in the Event
Viewer, and using Repadmin /showrepl reports no errors.

However, when I try to use the Repadmin /replicate I'm getting an error one
way. DC1 is in site 1 and DC2 is in site 2. I'm using the following
commands. The messages received are also shown. The problem is with the
second example:

========
repadmin /replicate DC2.mydomain.com DC1.mydomain.com dc=mydomain,dc=com
Sync from DC1.mydomain.com to DC2.mydomain.com completed successfully.

repadmin /replicate DC1.mydomain.com DC2.mydomain.com dc=mydomain,dc=com
DsReplicaSync() failed with status 8452 (0x2104):
Can't retrieve message string 8452 (0x2104), error 1815.
========

Does anyone have any ideas on what this could be?

Thanks,

Curtis.

Run some specific diags against your domain.

If you don't have the support tools installed, install them from your server
install disk.
d:\support\tools\setup.exe

Run dcdiag and repadmin in verbose mode.
-> DCDIAG /V /C /D /E /s:yourdcname > c:\dcdiag.log
-> repadmin.exe /showrepl dc* /verbose /all /intersite > c:\repl.txt

**Note: Using the /E switch in dcdiag will run diagnostics against ALL dc's
in the forest. If you have significant numbers of DC's this test could
generate significant detail and take a long time. You also want to take
into account slow links to dc's will also add to the testing time.

When complete search for fail, error and warning messages.
