If you use Replication Monitor (Replmon.exe) and you add a server to monitor, when you connect to certain partitions the status of the directory partition is not shown and the icon for the directory partition may contain a yellow circle with an exclamation point (a "warning" symbol).
In addition, the following event log entry may be present in the Directory service event log if the logging level for NTDS Replication is set to 3 or higher:
Event Type: Information
Event Source: NTDS Replication
Event Category: Replication
Event ID: 1508
Time: 3:35:06 PM
Internal event: The Directory Service processed the replication state information request with status code 8453.
This behavior occurs because you do not have the required permissions to read the status of the particular directory partition.
The minimum permission necessary is "Manage Replication Topology" for "This object only" on the appropriate directory partition. For the domain directory partition, you can grant this permission through the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in. For all others, you can use Adsiedit.msc, which is an administrative tool included in the Support tools for Windows 2000. You can install Adsiedit.msc from the Support\Tools folder of the Windows 2000 Server or Windows 2000 Professional CD-ROM.
To delegate the permission to monitor domain directory partition status:
Active Directory Replication Monitor (Replmon.exe) is a tool included in the Support tools that you can use to monitor and troubleshoot Active Directory replication in Windows 2000.
