A new DC server last only two weeks, it had to be replaced. I used Acronis to
image the server, it's Windows 2003 Entreprise Edition R2.  After restoring
the image to the new server, AD does not replicate. This server is the main
DC, the only DNS server in the cluster.  Everything works, DNS, etc.. But, AD
does not replicate.  I get the following error when i try to replicate from
AD, error ID: 8457, which means "The destination server is currently
rejecting replication requests".

For sure something was not imaged properly using Acronis, this server has
two static disk, one Raid 1 for the OS and Raid 10 for the SQL application.

I ran Repadmin without success, i still have the old server that boots and
works, and i can still copy file from it. The question is what was not copied
by Acronis that i need to move to the new server.  Or is there a way to fix
the replication problem. Any help is appriciated.

thank you,
g
