I have replication DFS a folder from SERVER 1 to SERVER 2. This recently has stopped replicating with approx 20,000 backlogged files waiting to replicate from SERVER 2 (according to SONAR).

SERVER 2 event log is showing the constantly logged message of:


Event ID: 467 - logged under application
SOURCE:  ESENT
ERROR:  ntfrs (1044) Index GFileGuidIndex of table OUTLOGTable00001 is corrupted (0).

Any way I can repair the corruption to get the replication going again?
thanks in advance.

Thanks guys. Netman66, Im not running exchange on these servers. Ill go through the above 2 articles and see if anything helps. I restarted the main server last night and this morning the 20,000 backlogged files were gone and by COB its only showing 1800 files backlogged and climbing slowly. dont know if it has stopped again. SONAR is showing connectivity between the 2 servers as successful. Got me.

Anyway, the database corruption error is really worrying me but I cant seem to find anything specific on this - as thats really theonly message I can see which is critical in the event logs.

I have found a MS KB  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/232122/ which may help with this database corruption. It is logged consitently in the event log as described above. I will arrange this one day after hours and see what happens.
Very strange! Dont know if this wil fix it but Im hopefull

This is an interesting problem. I ended up running a chkdsk /f on the dfs drives. Although it took close to 24 hours to run (did this on a weekend) it fixed and found corruptions. My DFS replication is now working as per normal.

Ill apply to have this question deleted.

thanks anyway.
