Yes, I've done this a number of times, but it isn't forcing the remote site
to remove the unnecessary directory entries. It looks like removing the
directory connector and waiting for the directory to clear on the remote
site is going to take care of the problem. Thanks for your input Athif.

Lara, just a check did you try like, click on DIRECTORY REPLICATION- Click
on REPLICATION CONNECTOR- Click on site-Select the Site and say REQUEST NOW,
here did you try to check the Option, REFRESH ALL ITEMS IN THE DIRECTORY.
Hope this helps!

I've got a strange replication problem with one of my Exchange 5.5 sites.
The directory in that site does not reflect deletions of objects from other
sites. There are quite a few mailboxes listed in the Global Address List of
that site that have long been deleted from their respective sites. If I add
mailboxes to other sites, those do show up, it's only deleted items that
aren't being updated. I see no errors in the event log, and I've turned up
diagnostic logging for the directory service to medium for replication.

Anything else I should try?
