I am receiving persistent DFSR errors – 5014 errors stating that replication has failed with a partner immediately followed by a 5004 stating that a successful connection has been established. The server in question is the ‘hub’ so to speak of a DFS infrastructure consisting of five total servers.
Replication is working fine.
This server is also preventing access to some of the directories within the root. This could be an entirely different issue. Most users have failed over to a target on another local server. My user account (a domain admin) can only browse the DFS root on the problem server. I receive an access denied error when trying to navigate any deeper into the folder hierarchy.
All are 2k3 R2 except for the secondary server at the main site (the one everyone is using) which is 2K8 R1. The remaining three servers are at remote offices connected via T1. Their error logs are clean.
