    I have creat some DFS replication groups between two nodes or two clusters, these groups could be created successful, but sometimes the folders in these DFS-R groups can’t synchronization , the situations are stochastic . We don’t know why some DFS-R groups can’t aynchronization.

  • Its a DNS issue, I had faced the same issue. Sometimes the server names are not resolved. I would suggest to add the server names to host file on both the servers (source and destination).

  • Thank you very much!  Did you mean that add the server names to host file when creating the DFS-R group? The host file is the shared file we add  when creating the DFS-R group?

  • On each server edit the host file (\Windows\System32\drivers\etc) add the entries of the other servers in the host file.

    for example  server1.contoso.com  192.168.100.1
