Windows 2008 DFS replication not working as expected
Posted on 2012-03-17
Here is my setup
3 file servers core01, core02,core03
1 dfs replication group
yesterday core01 went offline due to datastore issues,
my understanding is that since our data is replicating across core01,02,03 the end users should have had access to the files even though core01 went offline.
that didnt happen, core02 has the following errors:
Warning:The DFS Replication service is stopping communication with partner CORE01 for replication group Training due to an error. The service will retry the connection periodically.
Error:The DFS Replication service failed to communicate with partner CORE01 for replication group IT rep test. This error can occur if the host is unreachable, or if the DFS Replication service is not running on the server
Where should I start to look
