Ok we need much more information
You have to locate the DN for the DNS zone, first to this seach:
ldbsearch -H ldap://<ip> --cross-ncs '(cn=partitions)' dn
ldbsearch -H ldap://<ip> -b <dn>
Where <dn> is the DN you obtained from the first search
You will find 6 objects normally it's the different naming context,
locate the 2 ones relates to dns.
Do the following
ldbsearch -H ldap://<ip> -b <forestzonedn> repsfrom repsto --show-binary
ldbsearch -H ldap://<ip> -b <domainzonedn> repsfrom repsto --show-binary
Send us the result
Also can you post the result of samba-tool drs showrepl
Can you also use repadmin on the windows 2008R2 server to get info on
the replication (according to windows 2008R2).
Also in order to get a better view can you use wireshark to monitor the
traffic between the 2 DCs, and the on Samba create a new DNS record (ie.
samba-tool dns add dcname zonename foo A 188.8.131.52), in the wireshark
trace you should see a couple of drsuapi calls and more exactly 1
dsreplicasync emitted from Samba (this is a replication message to tell
the other DC that there is something to fetch) and the getncchanges from
the Windows DC to actually get the changes.
