I have built 3 new 2012 servers for a customer but unfortunately they had to delay onlsite install for nearly 3 months.
2 of these servers were DC's
Now that we have put them back online we are having replication problems of he DC's.
The event logs are giving this error
The DFS Replication service stopped replication on the folder with the following local path: C:\Windows\SYSVOL\domain. This server has been disconnected from other partners for 78 days, which is longer than the time allowed by the MaxOfflineTimeInDays parameter (60). DFS Replication considers the data in this folder to be stale, and this server will not replicate the folder until this error is corrected.
To resume replication of this folder, use the DFS Management snap-in to remove this server from the replication group, and then add it back to the group. This causes the server to perform an initial synchronization task, which replaces the stale data with fresh data from other members of the replication group.
Error: 9061 (The replicated folder has been offline for too long.)
Replicated Folder Name: SYSVOL Share
Replicated Folder ID: 353102AF-7809-45F7-B664-0CB1160B3AE6
Replication Group Name: Domain System Volume
Replication Group ID: EB89B1B4-3E8A-49F4-AD81-0C89FA4594BF
Member ID: 2B5FBEB8-A8C2-4D43-BD1F-DB577FCFF1A1
I cant find anything in DFS manager console to fix this as the error message suggests
Does anyone have a step by step solution for this please urgently?
