Problem with Kilz 2 latex primer
I have kilz 2 latex primer going on new drywall, but part of the area had existing paint and was skimed over and completly sanded to degloss the old satin paint (was valspar latex paint previously)

the kilz primer was sprayed on and went on perfectly on the new walls, the exiting ones though it went on smooth, then started to pull and blotch together like it couldn't get adheasion..

what would cause this? anything that can be done to fix it?

The wall was clean, it was skimmed over with drywall compound, sanded, and cleaned after the sanding to remove the dust...

Tough one- I don't see a problem.
One point though is that when you roll it on, it is mechanically moved around on the surface and gets a better bond than just spraying, which can just lay on the surface.
Lots of pros will backroll a spray, even at the prime coat, for this reason.

Not a big fan of Kilz 2 primer for drywall. I prefer an actual DRYWALL primer for that task. As BJ said, be sure to back roll anything you spray for best results. What did you clean the dust off with? Hopefully, just a brush down and a light wet sponge mopping to remove any remaining dust.
