  • Hi,

    Regarding the error, you could refer to the below information:

    Summary

    This object monitors whether any replicated folders overlap (share the same folders) with the %SYSTEMROOT%\system32 folder, and generates a Warning alert if any overlapping folders are found. It does so by looking for the presence of DFS Replication Event 6410. Overlapping folders are unsupported.

    Causes

    An unhealthy state of this monitor indicates that DFS Replication folders overlap with a system folder.

    Resolutions

    Reconfigure the overlapping folders

    To resolve this issue, use the following procedure.

    Note: To perform the following procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group in the domain in which the replication group is configured, the creator of the replication group, or have been delegated permissions.

    1. On the affected computer, examine DFS Replication Event 6410 in the System log of Event Viewer to determine the replicated folder which has been configured incorrectly.

    2. Using DFS Management, make a note of the root path of the replicated folder and its staging folder.

    3. Check to see whether any of the paths configured for the replicated folder overlaps with any system folders (such as the %WINDIR% folder).

    4. Using DFS Management, re-configure the replicated folder so that none of its working folders overlap with system folders.

    Verification

    This monitor automatically resets to a healthy state when it detects that there are no longer overlapping folders.
