So, for the past few months I have been having major Active Directory Replication issues. Here are a few:-
1. trying to UNC to servers in other sites. I kept getting a login failure error. It worked with the IP Address. Very strange
2. When correcting to the primary site (Exchange host) users could not authenticate. They had to connect via OWA.
3. Trying to connect sharepoint from Doha. Users were redirected to the Dubai domain controller twice and then connection would fail.
I first thought this was an issue with the PDC. So i moved all the FSMO roles from my DC in Dubai to Doha. This didnt help.
1. net stop KDC
2. netdom resetpwd /server:server_name /userd:domain_name\administrator /passwordd:administrator_password
3. net start KDC
