I installed the bandwidth splitter on one of my 2 isa array servers and it worked perfectly, then i tried to install it on the 2nd one, installation went fine, then when i open the isa management console i get an error message indicating a problem while opening the bandwidth splitter snap-in.....when checking the event viewer, i noticed the following error occuring alot of times:
This is the replication status for the following directory partition on this directory server.
Directory partition: CN=FPC2
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 dsdiag.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 <partition-dn>".

Then i tested the replication between both isa servers like changing something on 2nd server then observe it on the first one but i never see changes being replicated!!!
Hello, I checked DNS, resolving names works fine from both servers, checked registry values and they are already set to 0..... Actually i have CSS installed on both servers, when i tried to connect to CSS on server 1 from server 2 it worked and i can see the missing snap-in.....i noticed something else, under configuration>servers, i see that server 1 has version:5.0.5723.511 but server 2 has version: 5.0.5723.493 !!
How can i fix that problem ??

5.0.5723.493 is for ISA Server 2006 SP1. If they don't match then there are some updates which have been installed on ISA server with version 5.0.5723.511 Did you update your ISA Server recently? Check for recently installed updates..
Regarding your issue, Check the "Replication CSS servers" computer set on both machines. It should include each other in that computer set. Node 1 with have an entry for Node 2 and Node 2 will have for Node 1. If it's missing, add them to look as above.
Do you see any events in Event viewer? Do you see any alerts in ISA console?
Break the NLB on Internal and External, try to sync the servers without NLB and then re-create the NLB
