Monday, March 05, 2012 10:52 AMGuys we use DFSR in order to move data into the central data center from our remote locations. I recently went in and applied filters so that DFSR could not replicate various file types such as PST files however it still seems that DFSR is replicating these files. So my question is how do I get DFSR to stop replicating the files I filtered out do I need to recycle the DFSR service when making such a change btw I had several files types so I had to add them via adsiedit?

DFS-R doesn't replicate temporary file. You will need to check these PST files' properties to see if they are set as temporary files.

You will need to wait for the AD replication after change settings of DFSR. You can also force an AD replication to sync the settings with other server targets.
See this article:
Edit the replication filters for a replicated folder
Filter changes are not applied immediately. The updated filters must be replicated to all domain controllers, and each member in the replication group must poll its closest domain controller to obtain the changes. The amount of time this takes depends on Active Directory replication latency and the long polling interval (60 minutes) on each member.
