I have DFS2 replication setup and I am replicating a folder to 5 other servers in different regions. One of the engineers placed a file to be replicated into one of the directires today and it keeps going into the Conflicted and Deleted folder under DFSPrivate.
I have gone to each server and deleted the file and the XML document. I copied the file off to a PC so that while I was doing that it wouldn't be on the server. After I removed all of the references to it under conflicted and deleted on all of the servers I copied the file back onto the HQ server where it belongs. Within seconds it was moved to teh Conflicted and Deleted folder.
We don't know what it is conflicing with since there isn't a file with that name in there. Opening the XML says it saw itself and renamed itself the same thing in the Conflicted and Deleted folder.
In the past when I have had conflicted files I have been able to delete the files on the servers and just place the file back but this particular file refuses. I have tested replication of other files and replication is working just fine.
