Try running netdiag, repadmin and dcdiag. Look for fail, error and warning
If you don't have the tools installed load them from your install disk.
d:\i386\adminpak.msi (Server tools for remote management of servers)
d:\support\tools\setup.exe (Server Utilities)
Copy the following to a cmd file and run look for error, fail and warn
within the reports. Post any errors you can't figure out. make sure you
modify DC_Name to the name of a dc in your domain.
cd "program files\support tools"
dcdiag /e /c /v /s:DC_Name /f:c:\dcdiag.log
netdiag.exe /v > c:\netdiag.log
repadmin.exe /showrepl dc* /verbose /all /intersite > c:\repl.txt
