are connected via a VPN like everything else at these sites. Neither have
firewalls running. One is a DC the other is a member server. Both host DFS
roots, one of which they have in common. Both run Windows Server 2003.
These two servers cannot communicate at all. Both can ping everything else
and everything else can ping them but neither are communicating at all. I'm
not sure when this started because the DFS replication occurs through other
mesh links and I never noticed.
Since they don't communicate at all, it seems like a network issue. But
since both work with everything else, I don't know what else to try. Both
are resolving to the correct IP addresses, there are no HOSTS file entries,
and as I mentioned there are no firewalls involved.
Any ideas what to try next?
