The DFS Replication service has been repeatedly prevented from replicating a file due to consistent sharing violations encountered on the file. The service failed to stage a file for replication due to a sharing violation. RRS feed

  • Question

  • So there are more than a couple threads already about DFSR issues even mentioning this error, however... most of the "files" listed dont exist and have random names e.g.

    35464C00

    &

    C0D56000

    the full error is:

    The DFS Replication service has been repeatedly prevented from replicating a file due to consistent sharing violations encountered on the file. The service failed to stage a file for replication due to a sharing violation.
     
    Additional Information:
    File Path: H:\Data\data\Share Folder\Work Management\Rota's\2020\Jan\35464C00
    Replicated Folder Root: H:\Data\Fldata\Admin-UW Folder
    File ID: {447810FB-3447-40CF-AF31-9A35CACA79FA}-v759011
    Replicated Folder Name: Share Folder
    Replicated Folder ID: 8A2269CD-3922-4921-B956-EBA23A9F8522
    Replication Group Name: ProdShare.local\data\Share Folder
    Replication Group ID: 88D70F89-E57B-42D0-9870-F90C855357FD
    Member ID: 38D66F8B-C54F-4E6C-BF01-E557EF354A96

    Do you have any suggestions what could be causing this or what the files are?

  • Hi,

    First of all , i would recommend you find the file under the path: H:\Data\data\Share Folder\Work Management\Rota's\2020\Jan\35464C00, check the file type.

    Then , check the if the file was excluded from the DFS-replication.

  • Hi,

    Using the DFSRDIAG BACKLOG command to check for sharing violations. The command output provides a list of the first 100 files that are not replicated.
    Based on my understanding, there are two kinds of the  sharing violations  events.
    Event ID 4302: A local sharing violation occurs when the service cannot receive an updated file because the local file is being used. This occurs on the "receive" side of the file change. The file is already replicated. However, it cannot be moved from the installing directory to the final destination.
    Event ID 4304: The service cannot stage a file for replication because of a sharing violation. This occurs on the "send" side of the file change. DFSR wants to stage or copy the file for replication. However, an exclusive lock prevents this.
    Based on your situation, it seems like the "receive" side, i would recommend you check the the if the local file is being used .

  • So it says its in sync... This is driving me crazy as i cant seem to find whats causing these errors to flood the event log....

    C:\Users\******>dfsrdiag backlog /ReceivingMember:****** /SendingMember:****** /RGName:"******\******\******-uw folder" /RFName:"******-UW Folder"

    No Backlog - member <******> is in sync with partner <******>

    Operation Succeeded

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I would recommend checking the if the file existed  from the member and the partner also the dfs-private folder firstly and then check what we can do next.
