The DFS Replication service detected a conflict between two or more nTDSConnection objects while polling for configuration information. The DFS Replication service resolved the conflict between CN=1a46e70a-b0f5-410f-afdd-7049b1685292,CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MyDC,CN=Servers,CN=MySite,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=Local, CN=b1f0fddb-18cc-459a-9891-15458f6c9a06,CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MyDC,CN=Servers,CN=MySite,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=Local, CN=b377e129-e214-4c52-bbe8-867686db3cb7,CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MyDC,CN=Servers,CN=MySite,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=Local, CN=c037d3d8-16cb-4ede-bf82-c2c72c025ea5,CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MyDC,CN=Servers,CN=MySite,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=Local, CN=82dff205-bc51-4f00-bf18-c47e96215608,CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MyDC,CN=Servers,CN=MySite,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=Local by using CN=ee5b0d6a-d843-48e5-8d8c-b3164dfa4b1a,CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MyDC,CN=Servers,CN=MySite,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=Local.

This error means that there are some connection objects conflicting. To solve it run ADSI Edit and connect to “Configuration” naming context


and delete the connection objects listed in the event where the conflict was detected, making sure to leave the object after “by using” in place because it’s the working connection.

Right click on connection object:

CN=1a46e70a-b0f5-410f-afdd-7049b1685292,CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MyDC,CN=Servers,CN=MySite,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=Local

and delete it.

Repeat the process for any additional connection object on eventlog.
