I have a replication group with two 2k8r2 servers as partners in a master<->master replication (so, both sides are always in sync and can update each other). This group is replicating two folders both used by IIS to share files. I have a webapp that dynamically generates output files and these servers are load balanced, so I need to have the output in both folders in basically real-time.
Now, it seems like replication hasn't worked since the initial replication with no indication of why. Event logs have no activity since the day it was set up about a week ago.
dfsrdiag replicationstate /member:server2:
C:\Users\fnc>dfsrdiag replicationstate /member:server2 /v [INFO] Computer Name: server2 [INFO] Computer DNS: server2.domain [INFO] Domain Name: domain [INFO] Domain DNS: domain.domain [INFO] Site Name: Default-First-Site-Name [INFO] Connected to WMI services on computer: server.domain [INFO] Issuing query: SELECT * FROM DfsrConnectionInfo [INFO] Issuing query: SELECT * FROM DfsrIdUpdateInfo [ERROR] Failed to execute WMI query [INFO] Execution Time: 0 seconds Operation Failed
Server 1 returns the same error.
dfsrdiag backlog /RGName:NameOfFolder /RFName:"Outputs" /SMem:server1 /RMem:server2:
Member <server2> Backlog File Count: 32558 Backlog File Names (first 100 files) Operation Succeeded
I don't understand what's going on. I have another pair of servers with DFSR replication serving our corporate file shares just fine, so this is puzzling.
