SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a Distributed File System Replication (DFSR) group that includes both Windows Server 2003 R2-based computers and Windows Server 2008 R2-based computers.
  • You try to replicate changes from a Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer to a Windows Server 2003 R2-based computer in the DFS Replication group.
In this scenario, files do not replicate.

Note You can replicate changes from a Windows Server 2003 R2-based computer to a Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer in the DFSR group.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because of a DFSR protocol compatibility issue between Windows Server 2003 R2 and later versions of Windows Server, such as Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. 

RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, install hotfix 2462352 on the affected computer. The installation of hotfix 2462352 updates the Windows Server 2003 DFSR protocol to be compatible with later Windows Server versions.
