DFSR Console issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI Team,

    I have 2 Windows Server 2012R2 servers in 2 different domains, same forest, running DFSR with replication groups.  One is in USA and the other in China.  They work great...!  Every year I create a new replication group to share the 1 folder between site and archive\remove the older year.  December I did this again but didn't put into the NameSpace so user's didn't see it yet.  I took a few days off at New Years so my new colleague tried to make the 2020 folder.  :(

    My colleague made a 2020 global folder and put it somewhere into the servername\DFSRoot\dfs\xyz…… somewhere in here.  It was like a virtual folder in the DFS of only 1 server.  I deleted that folder.

    I then added the 2020 folder to NameSpace and all was fine, I though.

    I see replication working fine.

    Now on that server I deleted the folder, when I load DFS Management, I no longer see the Replication opinion below Namespaces. When I load an MMC and add the DFS Management snapin, I can see the Replication windows, but it crashes when I click on it.

    Any thought on how to fix this...?

    Thanks, Tom...
