Message: Service detected invalid object data while polling for configuration information

Summary

A DFS Replication object in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) has an attribute that isn’t valid. This issue can be caused by AD DS replication latencies if certain parts of the configuration information in AD DS have not yet replicated to the specified domain controller.

Causes

A DFS Replication object in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) has an attribute that isn’t valid.

This issue can be caused by AD DS replication latencies if certain parts of the configuration information in AD DS have not yet replicated to the specified domain controller.

This issue usually occurs on servers running Windows Server 2003 R2 without the hotfix included with Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 953527.

Resolutions

Install the hotfix or upgrade to a newer version of Windows

If the server is running Windows Server 2003 R2, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 953527 for a hotfix that should resolve this issue, or upgrade the server to Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Wait for configuration changes to replicate with AD DS

DFS Replication will retry this operation, which usually resolves automatically after configuration changes replicate through AD DS.

To poll immediately for configuration changes, open a command prompt window and then type the following command once for each member of the replication group, where <domain> is the domain the server is located in and <server> is the server name:

Dfsrdiag PollAD /Member:<domain>\<server>

If this problem persists, verify that AD DS replication is working and that the service is able to reach a domain controller. If the problem persists for 8 hours, the DFS Replication service will disable the connection and log DFS Replication Event 5016.

If AD DS replication is working properly and the issue is still present, contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support (http://support.microsoft.com).

Verification

Look for the presence of DFSR event 6014 in Event Viewer.
