DFS Replication encountered an error while communicating with a replication partner during replication. DFS Replication will retry replication.
An unhealthy state of this monitor is caused by communication errors during replication. Communication errors can occur for the following reasons:
General network connectivity issues
Lack of software updates on replication partners
The DFS Replication service failed to contact a domain controller to access configuration information. The service will try again during the next configuration polling cycle. This event can be caused by TCP/IP connectivity, firewall, Active Directory Domain Services, or DNS issues.
DFS Replication failed to contact a domain controller to retrieve configuration information. If replication was working previously, the service will use cached configuration stored locally but will not respond to any configuration changes until the issue is resolved.
This issue can be caused by the following factors:
Basic network connectivity issues
Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) issues
The DFS Replication service failed to communicate with partner <computer> for replication group <dfs path to folder>. This error can occur if the host is unreachable or if the DFS Replication service is not running on the server.
