Maybe replication has been manually stopped between those servers, or
configured to only happen very rarely? Otherwise I would expect to see
an error of sorts. With the details given about this going broke after
removeing servers on the remote side, I wonder if someone configured
eDir to sync only one server over the line and let the rest only sync
internally, and this got broken by removing the servers that were
allowed to sync?

Other than that, ndstrace +SYNC +SKLK +SYDL should tell us what's going on.

I thought about that, but couldn't think of a way for replication to be set up so that it wouldn't work normally, but would still work ok when forced. Delayed replication on a really slow schedule, though? Maybe. That's an interesting idea.

I ran +SYNC +SKLK +SYDL on the server reporting the incorrect replication time. Let it run about five minutes. How much of it should I post here for you to look at. It is huge! Thank you!!

Might be better to put it on susepaste.org or pastebin.com and just put the URL here.

Just so you know, the original information still exists.

Can you delete it or maybe change the expiry to 30 minutes?

I set to expire in 20 minutes. Thank you. I'm not sure the setting is working. Can a KP delete the first URL. Maybe.

Re: Remote Server Replica Will Not Synchronize

I think I found the issue, maybe. The Default DNS Address: -- (SSL CertificateDNS) is pointing to the wrong server. I fixed it and am waiting for it to replicate as this server is at our DR site. I'm quessing why it hasn't updated yet. Will let you know.

Re: Remote Server Replica Will Not Synchronize

Solved!!

In iMonitor- Agent Configuration-Partitions - Purge Time - Change Cache -754 error. This was not showing until yesterday. Re-loaded ndsd ran a ndsrepair -E and replication times are now good. Whew!!
