I had problems with a 2008 server, and it was down for two weeks. I got it back online and now I am having problems with the other server (2012) replicating DNS and Active Directory info. I thought I had it all sorted out twice, but the problem keeps coming back--I assume something is replicating, but I can't find it. Now the 2012 server (the one that has always been up) cannot access drives on the 2008 server (the one that was down). The 2008 server can access drives on the 2012 server just fine. The client computers (several win 7 and win 10) can't access the network drives. I have tried countless Microsoft recommended fixes, but I'm striking out. The 2008 server is the DC, and the 2012 server is the GC. Does anybody have any ideas?

Have your tried running repadmin from a command prompt? What errors does it generate?
