JSI Tip 7171. When you use Active Directory Sites and Services to force replication between two Windows 2000 domain controllers in the same site, you receive 'The RPC Server is too busy'?

When you use Dssite.msc (Active Directory Sites and Services) to force replication between two domain controllers in the same site, you receive:

The RPC Server is too busy.

If the time on one of the domain controllers is greater than or equal to 5 minutes different from the other domain controller, you will experience this behavior.

To fix the problem, synchronize the time on the two domain controllers.
