    Hi All: I have replication set up between two 2008 std ed. servers (sp1)
    that are also domain controllers for a small domain.

    My DFS log is full of errors that recur once or twice an hour (or once every
    few hours), followed two minutes later by a message like "The DFS
    Replication service successfully established an inbound connection with
    partner...". The error is below...what would cause the periodic loss of
    communication between the servers?

    Log Name: DFS Replication
    Source: DFSR
    Date: 4/12/2009 6:15:27 AM
    Event ID: 5014
    Task Category: None
    Level: Warning
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A

    Description:
    The DFS Replication service is stopping communication with partner serverA
    for replication group webanddata due to an error. The service will retry the
    connection periodically.

    Additional Information:

  2. Hello geekguy,

    You are getting Error ID 1722 "The RPC Server is unavailable". Do you
    currently have any firewall in place in your network especially from
    ServerA? Do a repadmin /showreps on your schema master and post result,

    Isaac

    Hi Issac...no, there's no firewall between the servers, or running on the
    servers.

    Thanks for that link Isaac...in fact I did experience a dirty shutdown of
    all equipment a few weeks ago during a power failure...but the technote
    applies to 2003 R2, not 2008?

    FWIW: I have not rebooted "serverA" since it restarted automatically.
