DFS and conflict and deleted items
Posted on 2014-08-03
We had an issue with dfs database and it got dirty shutdown. As per microsoft kb article it should restart if we issue this command below
wmic /namespace:\\root\microsoftdfs path dfsrVolumeConfig where volumeGuid=""E18D8280-2379-11E2-A5A0-806E6F6E6963"" call ResumeReplication.
It gave me surprise by deleting all the files from the folder.
Files goes to deleted item/conflict folder if it is being accessed by more than one users in more than one server, this is not our case !!
Why it went into that folder?
Is it wrong to ins sue that command to restart the database?
