I've spent the last weekend trying to get two managers to replicate the database from the Primary to the Secondary. I've checked the comms (I can ssh from one to the other using nsm and not get a password prompt). I have tried recreating the database - no luck - I have tried fixing the issue as detailed in KB10465 and no improvement at all.
tailing the guiDaemon.0 log file gives me this message:
[07/15/2013 11:15:49.949] [Error] [3062122176-xdb.cpp:70] Unable to start Xdb due to error: Exception : Failed to create container "category_self" according to spec

Were you ever able to figure out the problem? I'm having a similar problem with 2012. I've forced replication by clearing data directory and it starts replicating but hangs half way and then restart every few minutes/hours. Both devices are up but showing 'dirty' but only the secondary is working properly.
