What is NtFrs? On my Windows Server Satandard 2003 in Event Viewer I have received the following message in File Replication Service:

The File Replication Service has detected that the replica set "Domain System Volume (SYSVOL Share)" is in JRN_WRAP_ERROR

I'd appreciate any feedback on whether this is something to lose sleep over.
Thanks

NTFRS is basically an older version of DFS.
Are you using DFS for anything?

Yes, this needs to be fixed, but be careful.
FRS is the mechanism that manages your SYSVOL on your DC's, and makes sure everything is in sync.

First take a look here, and see if it helps;

Well, the server itself was at another facility up until 9/6/08. From what I gather via Event Viewer, this has been a repetitive error since 9/2/08. All seems to be working great except for that one error I noticed today (I'm the new guy obviously). Seems the server was a server 2000 and was upgraded a few months ago to Server 03 Standard at our old facility. I'm not too familiar with the file replication service, hence why I ask.

Could this error somehow affect performance?

Yes, It means it is not talking to the other Domain controllers correctly.  GPO's, User accounts, everything would be effected.  If it was moved, you may need to check and confirm its DNS is correct.  If its IP changed, that might also cause issues.

Yes, I know for a fact the IP changed. Can you advise on how to correct this and if so, is it difficult?
I truly appreciate your input

Read through this article:

It goes over the basics of the replication that is happening and goes a little bit more in depth about the JRN_WRAP_ERROR.

Thank you very much for the help. Guess I should start working on this soon. Would this cause any crash in the server?

You are fine for the time being, I would just start by looking through that article and following it's suggestions. If you are making any major changes / rebooting of course you will want to do that on off hours.
