I have 2 windows 2008 servers that are linked by a VPN connection which should be replicating files by dfs. This however is not working correctly and I am hoping someone can help diagnose the problems.
Running dcdiag on one server gives the following errors
Doing initial required tests Testing server: DE2\DE1-CORE2 Starting test: Connectivity The host f4515c4c-433e-4e80-b14a-dadff6e7a657._msdcs.domain.local could not be resolved to an IP address. Check the DNS server, DHCP, server name, etc. Got error while checking LDAP and RPC connectivity. Please check your firewall settings. ......................... DE1-CORE2 failed test Connectivity Doing primary tests Testing server: DE2\DE1-CORE2 Skipping all tests, because server DE1-CORE2 is not responding to directory service requests.
This sounds like I have communication problems on this server, does any one suggest what I need to do to track down the problem and fix it
Many thanks for your help
