I have a file server with  ~ 1M files and everyday the DFS shows hundreds of replication errors due to open files (users do not switch off PC.

The error message is "Due to ongoing sharing violations, DFS Replication cannot replicate files in the replicated folders listed above. This problem is affecting 93 files in 1 replicated folders. Event ID: 4302"

Examples are:
\Operations\DailyNAV\A9021000
\Trades\Trading\Volatility Arb\JP\967ACA00
\Operations\DailyNAV2010\0DBF0000
\HR\Staff leave\2A578000
\Operations\2003-Daily\Assignment\8A79E100
\HR\leave\E8F49400
\Operation\DailyNAV\CE604000
\Operation\MarginRpt2010\Margin_cpty\August2010\02D11100
\Operation\DailyNAV2010\625E4000

Most or all seems to be temporarily files.

Is there any settings to switch off replication for temp files? The servers are Windows 2008 STD.

Thanks.

It can be setup to not replicate temporary files, but it is based on mask.  By default it doesn't replicate *.tmp and *.bak.
It can also be configured not to replicate certain subfolders as well.
The setting is configured in the DFS Management MMC.  
  • Select the Replication node,
  • Then select your DFS Group.
  • Select the Replicated Folders tab
  • Double click the replicate folder listed below
It should now display the dialog that allows you to configure the file and folder filters.
That being said, looking at your files you listed above, they don't seem to have a specific extension.  I'm not sure if your application can be configured to provide extensions to its temp files.
