2008 R2 DFS Replication Error
Posted on 2012-05-11
I am getting this error on my 2008 R2 boxes. They are all going over VPN's. I have applied all of the hotfixes that are currently available and none of them have fixed the issue.
The DFS Replication service is stopping communication with partner Server1 for replication group mydomain\shares\documents due to an error. The service will retry the connection periodically.
Error: 1726 (The remote procedure call failed.)
Connection ID: 2875A428-38DA-4E70-AC7E-F9F234E5F163
Replication Group ID: 9FBCE96A-0E91-438E-94C1-C0EB3F83BF8B
I am aware that it may be on my network. We have Cisco 1811's doing the WAN VPN. The only timeout policy in the routers is
ip http timeout-policy idle 60 life 86400 requests 10000
The service is crashing every minute, so does the 60 here refer to seconds or minutes? If this refers to seconds then this could be the culprit.
The weird thing is, there were never any issues when we were on 2003 R2. We recently began upgrading all our servers to Server 2008 R2.
Any ideas what may be the root cause here?
