linked mode vcenter ADAM errors

All,

I am getting the following warning in both vcenter servers that are connected via linked mode.  They are 2012 R2 servers running vcenter 5.5 U2.


This is the replication status for the following directory partition on this directory server. Directory partition: DC=virtualcenter,DC=vmware,DC=int This directory server has not recently received replication information from a number of directory servers. The count of directory servers is shown, divided into the following intervals. More than 24 hours: 1 More than a week: 1 More than one month: 1 More than two months: 1 More than a tombstone lifetime: 1 Tombstone lifetime (days): 180 Directory servers that do not replicate in a timely manner may encounter errors. They may miss password changes and be unable to authenticate. A DC that has not replicated in a tombstone lifetime may have missed the deletion of some objects, and may be automatically blocked from future replication until it is reconciled. To identify the directory servers by name, use the dcdiag.exe tool. You can also use the support tool repadmin.exe to display the replication latencies of the directory servers. The command is "repadmin /showvector /latency ".

I found this kb but only refers to vmware view ADAM database.

VMware KB: Forcing replication between ADAM databases

Per the kb

Run this command on all Connection Brokers in the same ADAM instance to show the replication neighbors and the last time they replicated (Note: In Windows 2008 R2, you must run the command in C:\WINDOWS\system32😞

C:\WINDOWS\adam\repadmin.exe /showrepl localhost:389 DC=vdi,DC=vmware,DC=int


I simply switched the command to show replication in the virtualcenter domain:


C:\WINDOWS\adam\repadmin.exe /showrepl localhost:389 DC=virtualcenter,DC=vmware,DC=int


However, when I do that, I am getting the following errors. 


C:\Windows\system32>C:\WINDOWS\adam\repadmin.exe /showrepl localhost:389 DC=virt

ualcenter,DC=vmware,DC=int

Can anyone provide feedback as to why I am getting this?  There's not alot of documentation and what is out there pertains to VMware View, not Linked Mode.  I was able to find this which seems to pertain, but it talks about seizing roles...maybe I am misunderstanding what happens within Linked Mode and the ADAM database, but neither of these vcenter servers are domain controllers and I certainly don't want to seize a role from a DC...

Hello,

I also see this on my virtual center server in linked mode. Is this service suppose to sync permissions only ?

I am attempted to do what is on :http://enterpriseadmins.org/blog/virtualization/linked-mode-server-replacement-and-vmwarevcmsds-erro...http://enterpriseadmins.org/blog/virtualization/linked-mode-server-replacement-and-vmwarevcmsds-erro...

but i don't want to be stuck with a broken vcenter servers

Hi There, did you have any joy with this? I have same issue in a 2 site linked mode setup. error is on one VC but not its partner.

No joy I was still getting errors for the longest time.  I got fed up with them and ended up killing linked mode so they are back to standalone vcenters.
