Have 2 server 2012 DC `s and replicating AD

Have this event in Active directory domain services event log on the PDC

Hi,

Perform the following on the servers where you're facing this issue

1. Add these registry values to all DFSR replications partners that are having the issues. You will need to reboot for these changes to take effect.



HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters



Value =DisableTaskOffload
Type = DWORD
Data = 1



Value =EnableTCPChimney
Type = DWORD
Data = 0



Value =EnableTCPA
Type = DWORD
Data = 0



Value =EnableRSS
Type = DWORD
Data = 0

For the event ID 5004. Refer the below link and see if it helps

Thanks

We have done the Registry settings and still the same error occurs in the event viewer .
Additionally checking the the two DC`s sysvol folders no replication occured

Also installed the newest Patch hotfices for DFS and Server  2012

On the DFSreports
" THis member is waiting  for initial replication for replicated folder sysvol . Share and is not currently particiating in replication. the delay can occur because the meber is waiting for the DFS Replication service to retrieve replication settings from Active directory domain services. "  .....


running repadmin all AD componenets does replicate apart from sysvol

Issue resolved By below

To fix this issue, we need to do authoritative restore for SYSVOL on DC-01 and non-authoritative restore on DC-02.
Action Plan
1.       Backup the content of SYSVOL on both domain controllers by copying it to another location.
2.       Stop DFSR service on DC-01 and all other domain controllers in the same domain.
3.       In the ADSIEDIT.MSC tool, modify the following DN and two attributes on DC-01.
CN=SYSVOL Subscription,CN=Domain System Volume,CN=DFSR-LocalSettings,CN=<the server name>,OU=Domain Controllers,DC=<domain>
msDFSR-Enabled=FALSE
msDFSR-options=1
4.       Modify the following DN and single attribute on all other domain controllers in that domain:
CN=SYSVOL Subscription,CN=Domain System Volume,CN=DFSR-LocalSettings,CN=<each other server name>,OU=Domain Controllers,DC=<domain>
msDFSR-Enabled=FALSE
5.       Force Active Directory replication throughout the domain and validate its success on all DCs.
6.       Start the DFSR service on -DC-01.
7.       You will see Event ID 4114 in the DFSR event log indicating SYSVOL is no longer being replicated.
8.       On the same DN from Step 3, set:
msDFSR-Enabled=TRUE
9.       Force Active Directory replication throughout the domain and validate its success on all DCs.
10.   Run the following command from an elevated command prompt on -DC-01.
DFSRDIAG POLLAD
11.   You will see Event ID 4602 in the DFSR event log indicating SYSVOL has been initialized.
12.   Start the DFSR service on the other non-authoritative DCs. You will see Event ID 4114 in the DFSR event log indicating SYSVOL is no longer being replicated on each of them.
13.   Modify the following DN and single attribute on all other domain controllers in that domain:
CN=SYSVOL Subscription,CN=Domain System Volume,CN=DFSR-LocalSettings,CN=<each other server name>,OU=Domain Controllers,DC=<domain>
msDFSR-Enabled=TRUE
14.   Run the following command from an elevated command prompt on all other DCs:
DFSRDIAG POLLAD
15.   You will see Event ID 4614 and 4604 in the DFSR event log indicating SYSVOL has been initialized.
