I have a replication issue with a server on my domain.  The server was fixed from a crash about 2 months ago by another admin, and I just relized it is not replicating.  I have repaired a couple of entires with ADSI Edit, but have come accross one attribute, fRSMemberReferenceBL.  This Attribute is currently null and needs to be set to CN=Domain System Volume (SYSVOL share),CN=NTFRS Subscriptions,CN=AGUASVR1,OU=Domain Controllers,DC=dihs,DC=local, but when I try to save the change I get a popup that says "The Attribute cna not be modified because it is owned by the system"  I need to find a way to edit this value.  Any suggestions?

You should never edit a backlinked attribute.  A backlinked attribute is not hard set, it is calculated from a forward link.  Most backlinked attributes names end in BL, as does this one.  What is a backlinked attribute exactly?  Perhaps the most well known is member/memberOf.  The member attribute for a group contains the DN's for every object that is a member of that group.  The corresponding memberOf attribute on the user is not actually set when you add them to a group, this is only set on the member attribute of the group.  memberOf (the backlink) is calculated on the fly by getting the data from the member attribute of the group (the forward link).

So what does this mean to you?  Basically you're trying to edit the wrong attribute.  You need to edit the forward link, which in this case would be the fRSMemberReference on the properties of the object CN=Domain System Volume (SYSVOL share),CN=NTFRS Subscriptions,CN=AGUASVR1,OU=Domain Controllers,DC=dihs,DC=local.  You will need to set this to CN=AGUASVR1,CN=Domain System Volume (SYSVOL share),CN=File Replication Service,CN=System,DC=dihs,DC=local.

I went to the site eventid.net. There was a posting which said the following:
Bjoern Wolfgardt (Last update 10/17/2003):
I had this warning too. What I did was to set the property "frsMemberReference" for the "nTFRSSubscriber-Objekt" again. It was empty in my case. The "frsMemberReference" contains the same as the "frsComputerReferenceBL" of the Domain-Controller Object that the "nTFRSSubscriber-Objekt" belongs to.

I see that you also needed to edit the frsMemberReferernce file. can you just please direct me to it in ADSIEDIT as I cant find it.

Many thanks

ADSIEDIT.MSC comes from the tools which are installed from the server cd.  CDRom drive\SUPPORT\TOOLS\setup.exe
