DFS and FRS-here comes the punishment
Posted on 2004-03-24
Getting Event log error that looks like this:
The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from SERVER2 to IRVINE for d:\datastore using the DNS name server2.wse.com. FRS will keep retrying.
Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name server2.wse.com from this computer.
 FRS is not running on server2.wse.com.
 The topology information in the Active Directory for this replica has not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.
This event log message will appear once per connection, After the problem is fixed you will see another event log message indicating that the connection has been established.
