DFSR replication stopped
Posted on 2013-09-15
I have a AD domain with a single DC running server 2012 Essentials.
The DC is running in HyperV.
Backup is performed with Veeam Backup & Replication and the problem appeared when the backup didn't complete. It was at 99% and never exited. We stopped all VM's except for the DC because it was this that was stuck in mode: "backing up...". Did a restart of the HyperV host.
After the servers came back up the DC is showing Event ID 2213 in the DFSR log.
The event states:
The DFS Replication service stopped replication on volume C:. This occurs when a DFSR JET database is not shut down cleanly and Auto Recovery is disabled. To resolve this issue, back up the files in the affected replicated folders, and then use the ResumeReplication WMI method to resume replication.
1. Back up the files in all replicated folders on the volume. Failure to do so may result in data loss due to unexpected conflict resolution during the recovery of the replicated folders.
2. To resume the replication for this volume, use the WMI method ResumeReplication of the DfsrVolumeConfig class. For example, from an elevated command prompt, type the following command:
wmic /namespace:\\root\microsoftdfs path dfsrVolumeConfig where volumeGuid="5178CC64-0E42-11E3-93EE-806E6F6E6963" call ResumeReplication
Since this is a single DC environment, is it safe to run the command listed in the event?
