Important This article contains information about how to modify the registry. Make sure to back up the registry before you modify it. Make sure that you know how to restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up, restore, and modify the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

SYMPTOMS

The File Replication service (FRS) log files located in the \Winnt\Debug folder log the following error and the replication for that file is unsuccessful:
Error compressing data. WStatus = 0xea

CAUSE

This problem can occur when the compression algorithm tries to compress the file before it is prestaged by FRS. The compressed file size is larger than the file had been before the compression process occurred.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
260910  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/260910/ ) How to obtain the latest Windows 2000 service pack
Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
There are two possible workarounds available:
  • Use the Expand utility, located in the \I386 folder on the Windows 2000 CD-ROM, to expand the file. To recompress the file, use the Compress utility from the Windows 2000 Resource Kit. When the file has been recompressed, FRS can replicate the file.
  • If you recompress the file, and it does not solve the problem, you can disable the compression process on FRS by changing the following values in the below registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters
    Value:Compress Staging Files
    Value Type:dword
    Value Data: 00000000 <HEX>
Note Please ensure to obtain the latest hotfix from the Hotfix server. If a hotfix is being saved, ensure it is refereshed from this server to prevent problems.

Note After applying this hotfix three redundant values may be added into the Registry which will need to be fixed in order for IIS to work properly. This should not occur if the above note is followed. But, if this does occur, for more information, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
