Symptoms


Assume that you define a static TCP port on which the NTDS service listens and responds to incoming remote procedure calls (RPCs). In this situation, Active Directory replication may fail with an RPC issue. This issue may include all symptoms in KB 2089874 and KB 2102154.

Notes

  • For more information about restricting Active Directory replication traffic and client RPC traffic to a specific port, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    224196 Restricting Active Directory replication traffic and client RPC traffic to a specific port

  • The NTDS interface is also known as the DRS interface. Using a static port lets the administrator constrain communication for an activity (such as Active Directory replication) to a known port. This lets firewalls be configured to allow traffic to only that port.


Cause

When the static port for the NTDS service is successfully registered with the endpoint mapper, a dynamic port is also registered. However, the static port is not always returned by the endpoint mapper as first priority. If a dynamic port is returned and is also blocked by the firewall, it may cause the issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section.
