We're running 2 - 2012 R2 boxes configured for DFS-R.
Recently we found out that 2 users were seeing different content in a single folder. When I checked on it, SERVER 2 has all the files, SERVER 1 has half. The server with half the files, appears to have the newer items, but none of the ones from the Initial File Transfer.(all of this is thru viewing their own shares, thru their own Consoles)
Not a big deal, was just going to force replication and be done with it. Except for, that it didn't work.
When I browse SERVER 1 from SERVER 2, SERVER 2 sees SERVER 1 as having all the same files it does and vise vera. Replication works perfectly in both directions. Diag reports, prop reports, all show ZERO issues.
Any clue on why these servers are seeing the same file content on their partner, when they do not have the same file content?
(there is no back log btw)
Thanks for any help, I am perplexed.
