    The File Replication Service cannot start replica set %1 on computer %2 for directory %3 because the type of volume %4 is not NTFS 5.0 or later. The volume's type can be found by typing "chkdsk %4". The volume can be upgraded to NTFS 5.0 or later by typing
    "chkntfs /E %4".
  • Event ID: 13508
    Event Type: Warning
    Rule: Warning alert, states the need to look for event ID 13509 to see if everything is working as expected.
    Message Text:
    The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from %1 to %2 for %3 using the DNS name %4. FRS will keep retrying.
    Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.

    [1] FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name %4 from this computer.
    [2] FRS is not running on %4.
    [3] The topology information in the Active Directory for this replica has not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.

    This event log message will appear once for each connection. After the problem is fixed you will see another event log message that indicates that the connection has been established.
  • Event ID: 13509
    Event Type: Warning
    Rule: Collect
    Message Text: The File Replication Service has enabled replication from %1 to %2 for %3 after repeated retries.
  • Event ID: 13510
    Event Type: Error
    Rule: Filter
    Message Text:
    The File Replication Service on the computer %1 cannot communicate with the File Replication Service on the computer %2. Verify that the computer %2 is up and running. Verify that the File Replication Service is running on %2 by typing "net start ntfrs" on %2. Verify that the network is functioning between %1 and %2 by typing "ping %1" on %2 and "ping %2" on %1. If the pings succeed then retry the failed operation.If the pings fail then there may be problems with the DNS server.The DNS server is responsible for mapping computer names to IP addresses. The commands "ipconfig" and "nslookup" help diagnose problems with the DNS server. Typing "ipconfig /all" will list the computer's IP address and the IP address of the computer's DNS servers. Type "ping DNS server's IP address" to verify that a DNS server is available. The DNS mapping for %2 or %1 can be verified by typing "nslookup" and then typing "%2" and then "%1" on %1 and %2. Be sure to check out the DNS server on both %1 and %2; a DNS problem on either computer will prevent proper communication.

    Some network problems between %1 and %2 can be cleared up by flushing the DNS Resolver Cache. Type "ipconfig /flushdns". Some network problems between %1 and %2 can be cleared up by renewing the IP address. Type "ipconfig /release" followed by "ipconfig /renew".

    Some network problems between %1 and %2 can be cleared up by resetting the computer's DNS entry. Type "net stop NetLogon" followed by "net start NetLogon". Some problems between %1 and %2 can be cleared up by restarting the File Replication Service. Type "net stop ntfrs" followed by "net start ntfrs". Some problems between %1 and %2 can be cleared up by restarting the computers %1 and %2 after closing running applications, especially dcpromo. Click on Start, Shutdown, select Restart, and click on OK. Other network and computer problems are beyond the scope of this event log message.
  • Event ID: 13511
    Event Type: Error
    Rule: Alert suppressed based on ID, source, computer
    Message Text:
    The File Replication Service is stopping on computer %1 because there is no free space on the volume containing %2. The available space on the volume can be found by typing "dir %2". Once free space is made available on the volume containing %2, the File Replication Service can be restarted immediately by typing "net start ntfrs". Otherwise, the File Replication Service will restart automatically at a later time. For more information about the automatic restart right click on My Computer and then click on Manage, System Tools, Services, File Replication Service, and Recovery. For more information about managing space on a volume type "copy /?", "rename
    /?", "del /?", "rmdir /?", and "dir /?".

    Message Text:
    The File Replication Service has detected what appears to be an attempt to change the root path for the following replica set: "%1" This is not allowed. To perform this operation you must remove this member from the replica set and add the member back with the new root path. It is possible that this is a transient error due to Active Directory replication delays associated with updating FRS configuration objects. If file replication does not take place after an appropriate waiting time, which could be several hours if cross site Active Directory replication is required, you must delete and re-add this member to the replica set. Information related to this event is shown below:

    Message Text:
    The File Replication Service has detected a duplicate connection object between this computer "%7" and a computer named "%1". This was detected for the following replica set: "%2" This is not allowed and replication will not occur between these two computers until the duplicate connection objects are removed. It is possible that this is a transient error due to Active Directory replication delays associated with updating FRS configuration objects. If file replication does not take place after an appropriate waiting time, which could be several hours if cross site Active Directory replication is required, you must manually delete the duplicate connection objects by following the steps below:

    [1] Start the Active Directory Users and Computers Snapin.

    [2] Click the view button and advanced features to display the system node.

    [3] Click on "%3, %4, %5".

    [4] Under "%5" you will see one or more DFS related replica set objects.

    Look for the FRS member object "%6" under the subtree for replica set "%2".

    [5] Under "%6" look for duplicate connections from "%1".
    [6] Delete all but one of the connections.

    The File Replication Service has detected that the replica root path has changed from "%2" to "%3". If this is an intentional move then a file with the name NTFRS_CMD_FILE_MOVE_ROOT needs to be created under the new root path. This was detected for the following replica set: "%1" Changing the replica root path is a two step process which is triggered by the creation of the NTFRS_CMD_FILE_MOVE_ROOT file.
    [1] At the first poll which will occur in %4 minutes this computer will be deleted from the replica set.
    [2] At the poll following the deletion this computer will be re-added to the replica set with the new root path. This re-addition will trigger a full tree sync for the replica set. At the end of the sync all the files will be at the new location. The files may or may not be deleted from the old location depending on whether they are needed or not.

    Message Text:
    The File Replication Service has detected that the volume holding the FRS debug logs is running out of disk space. This will not affect replication unless this volume hosts database, staging, or replica root paths aswell. Path to the logs directory = %1 You can change the number and size of logs by adjusting the following registry values. Sample values are shown below. These values are under the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/ Services/NtFrs/Parameters Debug Log Files REG_DWORD 0x5 Debug Log Severity REG_DWORD 0x2 Debug Maximum Log Messages REG_DWORD 0x2710 You can also change the path to the logs directory by changing the following value at the same location. Debug Log File REG_SZ %windir%\debug Changes to the registry values will take affect at the next polling cycle.

    Rule: Initial non-authoritative restore in progress
    Message Text:
    File Replication Service is initializing the system volume with data from another domain controller. Computer %1 cannot become a domain controller until this process is complete. The system volume will then be shared as SYSVOL. To check for the SYSVOL share, at the command prompt, type net share.

    When File Replication Service completes the initialization process, the SYSVOL share will appear. The initialization of the system volume can take some time. The time is dependent on the amount of data in the system volume, the availability of other domain controllers, and the replication interval between domain controllers.

    Rule: Excess file updates detected
    Message Text:
    File Replication Service has detected and suppressed an average of %1 or more file updates every hour for the last %2 hours because the updates did not change the contents of the file. The tracking records in FRS debug logs will have the filename and event time for the suppressed updates. The tracking records have the date and time followed by :T: as their prefix. Updates that do not change the content of the file are suppressed to prevent unnecessary replication traffic. Following are common examples of updates that do not change the contents of the file.

    [1] Overwriting a file with a copy of the same file.
    [2] Setting the same ACLs on a file multiple times.
    [3] Restoring an identical copy of the file over an existing one.

    Suppression of updates can be disabled by running regedit. Click on Start, Run and type regedit. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters and create or update the value "Suppress Identical Updates To Files" to 0 (Default is 1) to force identical updates to replicate.

    Rule: Journal Wrap detected.
    Message Text:
    The File Replication Service has detected that the replica set "%1" is in JRNL_WRAP_ERROR.

    Replica set name is : "%1"
    Replica root path is : "%2"
    Replica root volume is : "%3"

    A Replica set hits JRNL_WRAP_ERROR when the record that it is trying to read from the NTFS USN journal is not found. This can occur because of one of the following reasons.

    [1] Volume "%3" has been formatted.
    [2] The NTFS USN journal on volume "%3" has been deleted.
    [3] The NTFS USN journal on volume "%3" has been truncated. Chkdsk can truncate the journal if it finds corrupt entries at the end of the journal.
    [4] File Replication Service was not running on this computer for a long time.
    [5] File Replication Service could not keep up with the rate of Disk IO activity on "%3".

    Setting the "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" registry parameter to 1 will cause the following recovery steps to be taken to automatically recover from this error state.

    [1] At the first poll, which will occur in %4 minutes, this computer will be deleted from the replica set. If you do not want to wait %4 minutes, then run "net stop ntfrs" followed by "net start ntfrs" to restart the File Replication Service.
    [2] At the poll following the deletion this computer will be re-added to the replica set. The re-addition will trigger a full tree sync for the replica set.

    WARNING: During the recovery process data in the replica tree may be unavailable. You should reset the registry parameter described above to 0 to prevent automatic recovery from making the data unexpectedly unavailable if this error condition occurs again.

    To change this registry parameter, run regedit. Click on Start, Run and type regedit. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
    Click down the key path:
    "System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters"
    Double click on the value name
    "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" and update the value.

    If the value name is not present you may add it with the Add Value function under the Edit Menu item. Type the value name exactly as shown above using the the registry data type REG_DWORD.
