JSI Tip 1687. Directory replication logs Event IDs 1188, 1083, and 1059?

If the following events are logged during directory replication:

Event ID 1188
Source: MSExchange DS
Type: Information
Category: Replication
Internal event: The directory replication agent (DRA) received exception 1727 from a 
                remote procedure call (RPC) connection to server SERVER1.

Event ID 1083
Source: MSExchangeDS
Type: Warning
Category: Replication
Replication warning: The directory replication agent (DRA) couldn't synchronize naming 
                     context /o=Org/ou=Site with naming context on directory SERVER1.

Event ID 1059
Source: MSExchangeDS
Type: Warning
Category: Replication
Internal error: The directory replication agent (DRA) call returned error 13.
your exchange server can't resolve the name of the server it is replicating to, via TCP/IP.

You need to troubleshoot the name resolution problem.

In the mean time, add a HOSTS entry to the Exchange Server to force resolution.

Use NOTEPAD to open the file in the Winnt\System32\Drivers\Etc folder. enter the IP Address and Server Name ( ServerName) and save the file.

NOTE: The HOSTS file is read every time a Winsock application resolves a host name. The #PRE is not used (unlike an LMHOSTS entry).
