windows 2008 R2 DFS-R issue

Hi Experts,

In my environment, there are 2 windows 2008 R2 servers which have DFS-R setup to replicate 2 folders (folderA and folderB) between them. ABE is enabled on both folders and also at the DFS-N level. share and NTFS permissions are identical on both folders as well.

For some reason, only folderA replication is successful. Anyone have any idea?

Are you seeing any events in your logs?  Have you used dfsrdiag to troubleshoot, more on that here   http://blogs.technet.com/b/filecab/archive/2009/05/28/dfsrdiag-exe-replicationstate-what-s-dfsr-up-to.aspx

Is there anything different about folderA vs. folderB?

Checked the following command for the state of the replicated folders :
Wmic /namespace:\\root\microsoftdfs path dfsrreplicatedfolderinfo get replicationgroupname,replicatedfoldername,state

As suggested check the event log too of DFSR you may get evidence to troubleshoot further.Run dfsr health diagnosis:http://www.adshotgyan.com/2010/12/dfsr--in-windows-2008.html

Ensure that correct statging is configured and dns is set correctly.http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2011/07/13/how-to-determine-the-minimum-staging-area-dfsr-needs-for-a-replicated-folder.aspx
