New Domain Controller FRS error
Posted on 2014-04-14
Three days ago, I promoted a new 2012 R2 server to a domain controller. I keep checking to see if the sysvol is shared and it is not, so I looked at the event logs. (FYI: Currently, our domain is still transitioning from FRS to DFS replication of the sysvol. The global state is "Redirected". Not sure if that has any bearing on the situation.) We are getting the event 13508 twice every day since the promotion, but we never got the 13509 event. It is trying to replicate from a server in the same site (Windows Server 2008). I have verified that the File Replication Service is running on both machines and that the new server can ping by name the server it is replicating from. Active directory is replicating just fine. What should I be looking at to resolve this issue?
Thanks in advance for your help.
