am getting numerous errors on the office server stating it cannot replicate
with the production server. The error is as follows:
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: NtFrs
Event Category: None
Event ID: 13508
Time: 4:46:33 AM
The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from
CEDAR to BMPSERVER for c:\winnt\sysvol\domain using the DNS name
cedar.BMP.local. FRS will keep retrying.
Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name cedar.BMP.local from this
 FRS is not running on cedar.BMP.local.
 The topology information in the Active Directory for this replica has
not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.
This event log message will appear once per connection, After the problem
is fixed you will see another event log message indicating that the
connection has been established.

I am extremely new to replication and all its nuances.
Whilst researching i found that both servers had the file replication
service started but only the production server had the SYSVOL and NETLOGON
I think this is the cause of the problem where the replication service
cannot find the files to replicate on the office server.
If i shared the NETLOGON and SYSVOL folders, would that fix the problem? If
it fixes the problem will it cause any other problems?
Currently we do not use the production server for local computer logon, only
terminal services logon. All local logon are authorised by the office server
never the production server except for the production computers which are
always connected to the production server.
If anyone could help i would be greatly appreciative.
Thanks in advance
