Domain synchronization may fail with the following error:
The easiest way for this error to occur is to install a domain controller while either it or the other domain controller is disconnected from the network or off-line. This will create a domain with the same name but it will have a different security identifier (SID). As far as Windows NT domains, machine accounts, and trusts are concerned, you have created a new domain.
The problem domain controller must be re-installed when it can connect to the primary domain controller.
Additional query words: trust installed account sync logon replication synchronization
