Cannot create routing group connector - c0040391 error

Failed in reading Connector's DS Info Process Id: 1316 Process
location: C:\WINNT\System32\inetsrv\inetinfo.exe ConnectorDN:
Groups,CN=Germany,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=deleted
Corp,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=aaa,DC=deleted,DC=com
Hr:c0040391 Attribute:[msExchTargetBridgeheadServersDN]

Added a child domain to an existing Win2000 domain which has 5 sites
with exchange 2000 servers interconnected with routing groups. Each
site has a connector to the other 4.

The new exchange server in the child domain should be site #6 and it's
possible to create routing group connectors to 2 of the existing 5

The other 4 have an error msg similar to the one shown above, account
information has been "deleted", and the connectors are not created.

The attrbute "msExchTargetBridgeheadServers" can be expanded to:

Which is the correct descriptor for the target bridgehead server.

DNS appears to be correct (well, at least consistent) from the
viewpoint of all the servers in the exchange family.

Port 691 responds on all of them, port 135 notwithstanding MSBlast,
appears to be functional within the organisation.

It seems that the server on the child domain attempts to update the
link state table... but nothing happens.

Event log also shows:
This master server received a one level (Connector) call back.
Specific DS change has been detected and major version increase will
occur as a result. This should result in reset route or updated
routing packets being sent out to its slave servers and neighboring
routing groups.

Winroute shows that the major version number is updated but the
connector is never created.

The 2 that work are:
Germany <==> Denmark
Germany <==> USA (San Jose)
The 3 that don't are to USA sites that use the same physical route as
San Jose.
(same switches, firewalls, VPN tunnels, routers - the Camarillo server
which fails is 1 hop closer than the San Jose server which works)

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

To cut a long story short:

(a) I used a MS $99 online support question and got an answer:
(b) Please verify the "allow inheritiable permissions from parent to
propagate to this object" is set on the objects that are being
referenced in the "attribute" above [msExchTargetBridgeheadServersDN].
(c) Sure enough, propagation was blocked on the 3 failing servers

Enabling propagation allowed the connectors to be created.

Thank you MicroSoft
