  • Hi Bibin Mathew,

    Thanks for your post.

    The issue was caused by a recent unexpected DFS server shutdown. Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012 by default do not automatically resume DFS replication after dirty DFSR JET database shutdown. You may need to re-start DFS replication manually to have a check.

    Best Regards,
