Problems routing mail after adding a new server

I just added a new mail server into our domain. However, I am having trouble routing mail and receive the message, "no route found..." I noticed the "operating system" field in the server doc was not filled in! Could this be causing my problem? Do you have any ideas why this field wasn't filled in? Are there any resolutions, short of uninstalling & re-installing Domino to correct it? O/S is WinNT4 and I already have seven Domino servers. I have never had this problem before.
The missing OS fields and the like are due to Admin4.nsf not replicating. This makes sense since none of your servers can see this one. Make sure your connections are correct. DNS needs to be correct. If you can ping the server from another server by NAME, then DNS is correct. That would mean that perhaps your connection document is not correct. Make sure your IP address or host name in the connection doc is correct, if you filled in that field. Also make sure the Named Notes Network (NNN) in the server doc is the same as it is in the other servers. Mail will not route automatically if the NNN is different from the other servers.
