Apart from the possible 'bdc' records in AD, I don't think you have a
replication problem. I say possible 'bdc' records, because they could
be tombstones and you cannot easily delete them.
Coming back to the replication, from what you have posted, you have this
Matriz site Filail site
DC1 --------------- DC3
You don't actually want replication between DC2 & DC3, this would
mean using the WAN link. DC2 would replicate to DC1 (and
visa versa), DC1 would replicate to DC3 (and visa versa again).
