file dissapearing in DFS share setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have setup DFS share to replicate between 2 servers. I have also configured the primary server to be first amongst all members. We've been having problems where files are dissapearing from the primary server, but when i browse to the secondary server, the files are there.

    Have experience a similar problem/.?

  • Hello,

    To narrow down the issue, would you please perform some test to check if DFS Replication is normal?

    Dfsrdiag propagationtest /RGName:<replication group name> /RFName:<replicated folder name> /TestFileName:test.xml /V > C:\replicationtest.txt
    Meanwhile, please also create a diagnostic report on the new replication group to check if the if there is any error or warning message in it.
    Create a diagnostic report for DFS Replication
    If possible, please run the following commands on the problematic server to dump the AD configuration settings and service-wide configuration of DFS replication.
    Dfsrdiag dumpADcfg > C:\ADCFG.txt

    Dfsrdiag dumpMachinecfg > C:\MachineCFG.txt

    If possible, please post back the test result here.
