repository won't sync

I have created a Distributed repository using the unc method on my EPO 4 server
I have created a share on this server which everyone has full rights to. when the server was here on site I was able to do a full replication and several incrementals over that week.

we moved it to the remote site over a MPLS T1 WAN re ip'ed it and it started to fail on the replication.

I can ping my epo server from it
I can ping my repository server from teh epo console server

I can browse to the unc paths
they talk to the same domain controllers

so I went in and tried to recreate the repository in the epo console and it seems to be failing on the

download credentials (agent to repository)

Replication credentials (server to repository)

I put in valid domain\username : password
i press test credentials and it fails

I don't know where to go from here How is EPO confirming these credentials?

Re: repository won't sync

When you moved the other server did you change the domain?

Also if you do a NSlookup on the host name does it resolve the new ip address of the moved system?

I'm thinking that either we cannot authenticate to the new domain, OR DNS may not be updated.

Running IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS on the epo server will clean out any bad/old IP addresses.

Re: repository won't sync

thanks for the reply:

The server is on the same domain still, just a remote site with different subnet

nslookup can see it with the right IP and dns name

Re: repository won't sync

You can look in the EpoApSvr.log in the db\Logs directory for more information to the replication failure.
