DFS Replication failed to communicate with a replication group member because the member didn’t have the same configuration information. DFS Replication will retry this operation, which might resolve after configuration changes replicate through Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).
DFS Replication will retry this operation, which usually resolves automatically after configuration changes replicate through AD DS.
To poll immediately for configuration changes, open a command prompt window and then type the following command once for each member of the replication group, where <domain> is the domain the server is located in and <server> is the server name:
Dfsrdiag PollAD /Member:<domain>\<server>
If this problem persists, verify that AD DS replication is working and that the service is able to reach a domain controller. If the problem persists for 8 hours, the DFS Replication service will disable the connection and log DFS Replication Event 5016.
To test DFS Replication’s ability to communicate with AD DS, open a command prompt window and then type the following command: Dfsrdiag pollad /verbose. The command should report Operation Succeeded. If not, there is a problem communicating with AD DS.
To confirm that the issue is resolved, look for DFS Replication Event 5004 in the Event Viewer.
