|Message:||The Knowledge Consistency Checker (KCC) has detected that successive attempts to replicate with the following domain controller has consistently failed.
The Connection object for this domain controller will be ignored, and a new temporary connection will be established to ensure that replication continues. Once replication with this domain controller resumes, the temporary connection will be removed.
Despite several attempts, the Knowledge Consistency Checker (KCC) could not replicate with the domain controller. Therefore, the KCC has created a new temporary connection object. When the KCC can replicate with the domain controller again, the temporary connection object will be removed.
If there are other bridgeheads available, this situation is not a problem. However, if an eligible bridgehead does not exist, the whole site will be unreachable. In that case, related NTDS KCC 1311 events are logged.
This is probably a temporary situation. No user action is required.
However, if the domain controller was removed from the site topology and it will not be replaced, use ntdsutil.exe to remove references to it from the forest. This program is located in the Winnt\System32 folder.
