Hello Folks,

Well, I have two server, primary and secondary.
both of them were win server 2008, so I upgraded the secondary to win server 2016 then I did duplicate. In the primary I can see the secondary, but in the secondary I can't see the primary.

NOTE: All the files and settings duplicated to the secondary.

Thank you,

    In the primary I can see the secondary, but in the secondary I can't see the primary.

    What does this mean?

    Please run;

    Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:%computername% >c:\dcdiag.log
    repadmin /showrepl >C:\repl.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc1.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc2.txt

    then put unzipped text files up on OneDrive and share a link.

    Sorry I'll clear my point.
    after I did migrate to the win server 2016 I did replicate, so when I create a user in the Primary I could see it in the secondary, but when I create a user on the Secondary I could not see it in the Secondary.

    NOTE: THIS message show up when I use this command on the Primary repadmin /syncall "the RPC unavailable"

    Ok, not a lot to go on but try a non authoritative synchronization
