Hello Experts,

I just ran the Microsoft IT Environment Health Scanner on my 2003 (SP2) server and I have a Data Collections error…

FrsConvergence
Error: Multiple canary servers.

report_FrsConvergence
What does this mean?
I have look, but can’t find out what they are talking about, or if this is a bad thing.
Can someone explain and point me in the right direction as to resolve this.

Thanks

This might help as well as the catagory your error is under - FRS.  Check for any errors in FRS.

Hey joelsplace
Thanks for the fast reply

I just get an 404 not found error on the link...

Had some error when I promoted DC last night.
13508 and 13509
Took a few times to replicate to main site, but it did replicate.

This DC is at a second site (same domain) and replication is over DSL line
(probably why it took a few times to replicate when promoted)

But I haven't had any errors replicating since...

Thanks

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Give this MS FRS tool a try if you haven't already.  It's great.

The first link I get a powerpoint file on Runtime Defenses against Memory Corruption.
LOL

That is about how my day has gone...

Have you installe the MS FRS tool?
sounds like a lot of installing........(on servers)

Tested domain at second site (dcdiag, netdiag, and replmon)
All came up with Pass
Still can't seem to figure out what the FrsConvergence errror is all about.

when I think about the word Convergence, I think of the cisco term for the routers or router tables to all sync up on the same page. So make me think DC are not getting together, but I can't find anything to suggest other wise.

You only have to install it on one box.  Yes I use it on a 2003SBS server.
Sorry that is a ppt.  It discusses what a canary is.
