Trying to replmon.exe on a new 2003 server. It does not appear to even run on the 2nd DC or the 1st DC.


Thanks.

    Above should read "Trying to run replmon.exe".

    Are you getting an error? Is there anything in the event viewer?  Need a little more information before we can try to help you!

    No error. Looks like the program opens and closes real fast though. Nothing in the event log regarding replmon.exe. The 1st DC is an NT 4.0 upgraded to 2003. The 2nd DC is a virgin install of 2003. The 1st DC is dishing out group policies fine so I think it is ok. Just not sure why replmon won’t run.


    Thanks.

    The following is in the event log under File Replication Service after a fresh reboot. Maybe a DNS issue?




    Event Type:      Warning
    Event Source:      NtFrs
    Event Category:      None
    Event ID:      13508
    Date:            10/25/2004
    Time:            4:13:49 PM
    User:            N/A
    Computer:      FAMEDC2
    Description:
    The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from \\famedc1.fame to FAMEDC2 for c:\windows\sysvol\domain using the DNS name \\famedc1.fame. FRS will keep retrying.
     Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
     
     [1] FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name \\famedc1.fame from this computer.
     [2] FRS is not running on \\famedc1.fame.
     [3] 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.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    There are a couple of causes for 13508 errors, but let's start with the least intrussive:

    Oh SHEESH I hate that thing!  Ok, actually it's a GREAT recommendation.  It's just that the last time I had to use it, it burped out a book of things I was doing wrong!  :)

    This is what the diag tool gave me. Access denied ? Still seems to have something to do with DNS.

    see the permissions described in the
    answer to the question "Can I enable FRS replication on a DFS link whose
    targets are in different domains?" at
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/overview/dfsfaq.mspx.

    The FRS objects in AD are illustrated in the FRS Technical Reference at
    http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/WindowsServ/2003/all/techref/en-us/Default.asp?url=/resources/documentation/windowsServ/2003/all/techref/en-us/w2k3tr_frs_how.asp

    Specifically, you'll want to search for the following graphic "FRS
    Containers and Objects in Active Directory for DFS Replica Sets"

    We are not using DFS at all. Does your answer (Hammadian2) still apply?

    Thanks.

    just try to read the answers
    u have problems with permissions i guess, so they might help

    if u think ur problem is with the DNS try to use IP addresses instead of hostnames and check what will happen

    Sorry, don’t get what you are saying. What folders need to have what perms? That article specifically talks about replicating specific DFS folders I think. I tried using an IP address in FRSDiag and I received the exact same errors.

    Thanks.

    if IP address is not working
    then it's not DNS issue

    regarding permissions
    try doing the whole thing using an account that 's member of the enterprise admin group

    or else u must have these permissions:

    • You must have Read and Create All Child Objects permissions for the computer object of each computer that will be part of the replica set.
     
    • You must be a member of the local Administrators group on each computer that will be part of the replica set.
     
    • You must have Read and Create All Child Objects permissions for the File Replication Service container and all its child objects. Although the File Replication Service container can exist in every domain, you must add these permissions to the File Replication Service container that is in the domain where the domain-based root is configured.

    Ok, I changed the user that the FRS runs under to a user that is a “Domain Admin” and FRSDiag ran through without error this time. It was set to run as System. Does this mean that now the 1st DC can be taken down and the 2nd DC will automatically fill in?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, been busy on other issues for the past few days. I thought it had run clean. Not sure what I ran that made me think it was clean but going back to it, this is the log….
     So there still seems to be an issue somewhere. I don't understand why this should be so difficult. The DC was upgraded to 2003 from an NT 4.0 PDC. I know that is not good but we intend to do a fresh install once we get another DC on the network. Is it the fact that it was upgraded from NT? I have GP working fine with a few clients already. One thing that I can think of..
    I have the NT4Emultaor key set in the registry of the DC so that all of the client don't automatically move to AD. I then have the NeutralizeNT4Emulator on the few clients that are using AD. Could that be a problem?


    Thanks again.
