DFSR Replication issues

Hi

I have just added a second server on another site connected via IPSEC VPN to our DFS.

The other site is for backup only and all users access the primary server for files.

Initial replication of one share was fine and went without a hitch, it was about 30MB so completed pretty quickly.

The second replication group folder is just over a 1GB which again is not huge, but it's stalled with errors:

The DFS Replication service stopped replication on replicated folder XXXX at local path D:\shares\XXXX due to Error ID: 9098 (A tombstoned content set deletion has been scheduled). Event ID: 4004

and

A USN journal wrap occurred 1 times in the past 7 days on D:. DFS Replication monitors the USN journal to detect changes made to the replicated folder. A USN journal wrap occurs when large numbers of files change so quickly that the USN journal must discard the oldest changes (before DFS Replication has had a chance to detect the changes) to stay within the specified size limit of the USN journal. Although DFS Replication automatically recovers from this problem, replication stops temporarily for replicated folders stored on this volume. Repeated journal wraps usually indicate that the USN journal is too small. Event ID: 2202

Google isnt providing many clues - any ideas?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Ok - It shows me that the Primary server information is correct.

What now?

I tried removing the RG and starting from scratch, but same error straight away.
