We migrated our VMs from 2008 R2 to 2012 R2 Hyper-V Cluster. One of the VMs was our file server that's running DFSR. The drive that we setup the DFSR folders are in E:\ drive which is a clustered pass-through disk. After the migration, we're seeing below errors in the Event Logs and DFSR Health Reports.

A database problem is blocking replication on volume E:.
The DFS Replication service was unable to recover from an internal database error on volume E:.
Replication has stopped for all replicated folders on this volume until the database is automatically rebuilt.
If the database is rebuilt successfully, replication will resume after the rebuilding is complete.

The error set you posted point to an issue on the volume/DFSR database.

Did you during the transition adjust disk space.

There is a way to revover from the DB error I.e. Resetting it. Stopping dfsr

Have to locate the correct steps. Will post.

Search for recreating DFSr database.

Deals with disabling the replication connects. Deleting the entrieson the failed system. Re enabling the connections into ...........

Hi Arnold,
I already tried the steps in your link with no luck but I think those are the correct steps to re-create the db.

I created a support ticket with Microsoft and they were also unable to get it going. They think it's something to do with the pass-through disk DFSR is on. I ended up attaching a regular .vhdx disk and that one worked fine.

Thanks.
