Replication Does Not Work When there Is a Name Conflict on a Global Catalog
Article ID: 271946 - View products that this article applies to.
This article was previously published under Q271946
If a Global Catalog (GC) server that does not have a writable copy of the partition contains an object in its naming context that was deleted on the server with the writable partition and the deletion of the object was not replicated to the GC, the GC may stop replicating on that naming context until the problem is resolved.
This problem can occur when replication to the GC does not occur either in the tombstone lifetime (by default, the lifetime 60 days) or in the tombstone garbage collection time. Because neither the deleted parent nor the conflicted object exist, the GC never receives an update that puts this object in the LostAndFound, which it needs to do. Until the object becomes "unstuck," the affected GC is not a viable replication source for the affected NC. Other GCs fail over to other sources for this NC.
