DFS is only partial replicating my folders
Posted on 2012-09-10
I love DFS on my Windows servers, but recently I've attempted to eliminate a Windows 2K3 Server and I've run into replication issues. I've built completely new replication folders for a number of folders and they are only partial replicating.
I thought it might be because some of my origin folders have really deep nested folders, but even one of my really shallow folders that only holds about 5,000 files isn't replicating all the way.
Is there an equivalent 'touch' feature in Windows (like in Unix) that would allow me to cause some of the the files in my origin folder to appear newly edited and re-replicate? I'm really not sure how to kick-start this thing so the rest of the folders get replicated.
Any new file that is created is replicated, but some files just don't come over.
