Server 2012 in Journal Wrap - how to resolve


  • Server 2012 AD controller running in 2008R2 native domain. Even logged showed that DFSR was not replicating.

    Ran the command in event log.

    After running the command, my Domain is in Journal wrap.  How do I correct that on a 2012 server?

    Command and output:

    wmic /namespace:\\root\microsoftdfs path dfsrVolumeConfig where volumeGuid="8D7CDF6C-EAC3-11E2-93E8-806E6F6E6963" call ResumeReplication

    Executing (\\SRV-DC2\root\microsoftdfs:DfsrVolumeConfig.VolumeGuid="8D7CDF6C-EAC


    Method execution successful.

    Out Parameters:

    instance of __PARAMETERS


            ReturnValue = 0;

    Journal wrap event:

    The DFS Replication service stopped replication on the replicated folder at local path C:\Windows\SYSVOL\domain.


    Additional Information:

    Error: 9073 (Content set initialization is pending journal wrap task to resume journal read)

    Additional context of the error:  

    Replicated Folder Name: SYSVOL Share

    Replicated Folder ID: A0619EF8-0AF7-4316-80E6-DEBB7B816600

  • The root cause of this was discovered to be Veeam backup. We got parts of the fix from a few different replies. 

    Basically stop DFSR service on other dc’s.

    To perform an authoritative synchronization of DFSR-replicated SYSVOL, we set:


    More details:

    The option “msDFSR-Options”=1 is what makes a SYSVOL as primary or in other words as authoritative. Not using this option implies the non-authoritative restore.

    Here’s the screen shot of what this setup looked like to clear everything up.
