unable to open the File Replication Service event log RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm getting the following error in the opsgmr eventlog on all of our Win2k8 DC's

    "unable to open the File Replication Service event log"

    I don't believe the file replication service event log even exists on Win2k8,  so I'm not sure if I should just disable this alert, or if I need to do anything to properly monitor the appropriate event log on Win2k8, which is the "DFS Replication" event log.   

    We're running Scom Sp1 with the 6.0.6452 version of the AD MP.

  • If the log that a monitor is looking to open is not present on the version of the OS you are using, this would cause this error message.  It may cause a "workflow execution failed" alert - but I would not expect to see that alert frequently since SP1 will unload the workflow when it fails like this and it won't check again until the health service restarts.

    It sounds to me like the MP is over-discovering and was not intended to function on this version of the OS or the monitor is a copy/paste bug.  There are a number of known issues in the ADMP that are being looked at for the next version of the MP.

  • I think this may be the issue:

    Let me know if that works for you.

  • Hi Scott

    I'll try to get some one into the loop here. Hope to get back to you.

  • Thanks Graham - as usual right on the money.        As you indicate in the link, these DC's are in a brand new win2k8-only forest that's in Win2k8  native mode using the DFS-R service,  so the legacy FRS service is not used.     I will override the two rules.

  • Hi Scott

    Please let me know if this does resolve it. Ian Blythe did mention a while back to me that he thought it might need more than just that tweaking but we never had time to investigate further. So it would be really useful to get a comprehensive solution on this ... hopefully the 2 overrides will work but if not, reopen the thread and we'll pitch back in.

    Cheers

  • Hi Graham,

    Unfortunately it looks like the event log entries are still getting generated on our Win2k8 dc's, even after overriding the two rules.  

    Please let me know if you'd like me to try anything else.  

    Thanks,
    Scott...

  • Hey Graham,
    There's an ulterior motive behind this new Win2k8 Forest - the business is expecting us to migrate everything into it, including our SCOM environment.     I've started another discussion thread with questions about domain migration limitations in SCOM and would really appreaciate your feedback as I've seen some other responses from you on the topic of domain migrations.  

    Thanks for your help.
