Recover DFS replication
Posted on 2014-03-03
I have an issue at one of our customers sites.
My customer has two locations with DFS configured. (NOT DFSR).
DFS is configured a backup purposes.
The HQ sents its data to the target location everyday at 20:00 PM
An application has created a lot of data at HQ. After this events the DFRS service stopped with event warning 5014.
After 6 of these errors the DFRS stopped with error 5002. which states that the DFRS stopped.
After these events the unexpected happened.
The targeted location started to replicate files back! at the 26 jan the customer detected old version files on the current shares.
Not smart to configure this as DFS instead of DFSR.
But is there a way to recover these data?
I have no idea where to begin or how to approuch this issue.
