Guys i am trying to setup lan routing between 2 subnets
with RIP

Got this setup in vmware server, got 2 domain controllers
Primary on subnet1 and secondrary on subnet2, installed RRAS
lan routing on both systems- i can ping both the systems with their
ip addresses, but my active directory replication has stopped working
When i go to replmon i can see the status of only 1 server(subnet-1), the 2nd server
doesnt get picked up in replmon... nor can new users created can log onto the 2nd server(server)

can the gurus pls shed some light on this and tell me where i am going wrong.

    Can you give us a little more information? What are the IP addresses of the two servers, what IP ranges are you trying to set up to communicate through RIP? What networking settings have you configured in VMware for the virtual machines to communicate? Just a little more information is needed, so we can help you out.

    It seems like a DNS issue to me. What are the IP addresses of the DC's? How's DNS configured? Are they in the same domain and are there any delegations/stubs/forwarders? As slowhand said, we need more information to help with this issue.

    guys i managed to fix it somehow...

    this was the setup i had

    dc1 - ip, sub
    dc2 - ip sub

    dc1 is the primary dc, and primary dns server

    dc2 is the secondrary dc, and secondrary dns server

    with this setup i could ping both the systems.

    i ran replmon on dc1, but it could not find dc2 ran dcdiag and it pointed

    towards a replication failure,

    not sure if this is was the solution for the problem

    but server1 was running in windows server 2003 native mode

    and server2 was running in downlevel mode pre win200

    i raised the domain functional level on server2 and the replication

    between both domains started working. all good now :) thanks all you guys :)

    guys could u tell me if that could have been the problem or something else ?
