Hi Denis

Thanks for your response without your crystal ball.

I have increased the log level =9 dns:0 on both the servers. It replicates
successfully by manually running the command
 samba-tool drs replicate SERVER2 SERVER1 dc=iumnet,dc=edu,dc=na --full-sync

but it is still failing when I check from the samba-tool drs showrepl

Also I run samba-tool dbcheck --cross-ncs --fix on both the servers which
didn't fix it. Please let me know how to check the replication Logs.

I will upgrade to the latest 4.7.4 to see if it fixes the problem.

On some of the Win7 clients after the password reset when the user changes
their password on the logon screen it keeps on saying " Your Password has
expired and must be Changed" even after the password is changed. What can
be the reason behind this issue.
