DFS Replication Issue Server Offline for Several Months
Posted on 2016-10-16
I need advice how to deal with a DFS Replication site it has been offline for 5 month. Starting back the server, all the data is there (5 month old). Now in Event Log of the DFS I have this error :
This server has been disconnected from other partners for xxx days, which is longer than the time allowed by the MaxOfflineTimeInDays parameter (60). DFS Replication considers the data in this folder to be stale, and this server will not replicate the folder until this error is corrected.
I have a server currently in the DFS where all the data is accurate. Can I force DFS to replicate from the "Primary Server" into the Server back online ?
We have over 800GBs of data and we want to avoid data lost in the DFS.
