Hi ,
I keep get this error :
The DFS Replication service failed to contact domain controller  to access configuration information. Replication is stopped. The service will try again during the next configuration polling cycle, which will occur in 60 minutes. This event can be caused by TCP/IP connectivity, firewall, Active Directory Domain Services, or DNS issues.

but when I go to DFS management tool, there is no replication group  , I tried to add namespace to show , and it said no namesapce found ,
I dont have any folder sync using dfs ,
may it is use for group policy folder .

how can I found what is this cause?
