replication problem on w2k domain

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsnt.domain (More info?)

Small overview of the network

Master DC
Domaincontroller 1 (location 1)
Domaincontroller 2 (location 2)
Domaincontroller 3 (location 3)

All servers are in a company wide WAN, servers in the domain are trusted to
another.
All servers replicate the agentlogin's with the Master DC so a login on
multiple locations is possible.
Since 2 weeks a strange event occurs, when a user is locked out the local
admin resets the account
for that specific user, and makes the login possible again.
Now the problems begin, the user stays locked out until replication has
replicated the user login to the
master DC.
This problem occurs by password lockout, password change.
Strange thing is that the servers have been running smoothly for the last 3
years, without any problems.

Does anyone have a solution or a tip to solve this?

Thanx

    Can you post an ipconfig /all from your four DCs?

    Do all of your DCs have DNS installed on them and are you using Active
    Directory integrated zone for your AD domain zone?

    Do you have only one domain?

    Are any of your DCs multi-homed or have RAS installed?

    IMO, since all DCs are at different locations, all should have DNS installed
    and you should use AD integrated zones. Then in TCP/IP properties all DCs
    should use the DC you call your master as preferred and one of the others as
    alternate then to itself as a third DNS. This will insure that all DCs are
    registered in DNS, will always have a DNS available at start-up, and will
    keep replication working.
