DFS issue on on windows 2008 R2 Enterprise RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Does anyone know what is this error i encountered? i configure the DFS feature of the server and i have no error encountered during my installation but this problem occurred once the scheduled is running.

    The DFS Replication service failed to communicate with partner SERVER1 for replication group TEST1. This error can occur if the host is unreachable, or if the DFS Replication service is not running on the server.

    Partner DNS Address: SERVER1

    Optional data if available:

    Partner WINS Address: Partner IP Address:

    The service will retry the connection periodically.

    Additional Information:

    Error: 1722 (The RPC server is unavailable.)

  • Hi,

    This seems to be a connection issue.

    First make sure you disabled Windows Firewall for a test on both servers as this error could occur if it is blocked by firewall. 

    If it is not related to firewall, check the connectivity between these 2 servers - for example test to access folder targets each other to see if it will work.
