Our DC2 is having problems replicating to DC1. We have been receiving these
errors in event viewer:

13552-the FRS is unable to add this computer to the following replica set
"COMPOSEROOTINCL"

13555-the FRS is in an error state. Files will not replicate to or from one
or all of the replica sets on this computer

13560-The File Replication Service is deleting this computer from the
replica set "COMPOSEROOT|PROFILES" as an attempt to recover from the error
state,
Error status = FrsErrorSuccess

13561 (JRNL Wrap)

This has been very repitious. We have done an authoritive restore on the
global catalog server, as these errors have been appearing on DC1. The
infrastructure role is on DC2, and the remainder four roles are on DC1.
Problem was fixed temporarily, for a few days. Now it reappears. Any
suggestions please?

Hi,

All of those errors are regarding corruption of the FRS jet database
One is in regards to disk space,
One is telling you it is stopping before it gets really bad
One is telling you that it is now removing the machine from the replica
set
And the last one is telling you that it is journal wrap and will not
replicate inbound or outbound until it is fixed.

I would move all the roles over to DC2, and on DC1 make sure we have
ample disk space, and set the burrflags to D2 on DC1

This is called a non-authoritative restore unlike the Authoritative
restore you preformed.

If you start the FRS with the Burflags registry value set to D2, the
FRS performs a full synchronization of files and folders from a direct
or transitive replication partner that is hosting the authoritative
copy of files and folders in the replica set (which in your case is
DC2)

Steps to take,

1. Stop the File Replication service on the domain controller. DC1
2. Start Registry Editor
3. Locate and then click the BurFlags value under the following key in
the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters\Backup/Restore\Process
at Startup
4. On the Edit menu, click DWORD, click Hex, type D2, and then click
OK.
5. Quit Registry Editor.
6. Restart the File Replication Service

Now the question that comes up is why this happens over and over again.
Maybe before setting the burflags on DC1, I would do a scan on the
machine, verify that there is nothing wrong with the drive and again,
make sure we have ample disk space.

Thanks for the information. Im still at a loss on this though as we have
39.9GB of space left on the drive. Could it be needing more space than that?

I know I have 4.8GB of space on the D drive.

I will transfer the Roles over to DC2 and retry the restore. I did both of
them before. The first time I did D2 in the DWORD and the second time I did
D4 since it came back. But I will give it a go around again.

Any thoughts on this?? Thanks.

Hi,

Please let me know how it turns out. Journal wrap has always been
resolved by a D2 for me.
Do you have an antivirus that is scanning your sysvol?
If so, I would recommend to remove this folder within the folders being
scanned.
From what you mention, you have plenty of space on your disk drive.


Good luck

No problem, as soon as I can take the server down I will do this and let you
know how it turns out. In the past, Journal wrap was fixed by D2 for us as
well. But for some reason it keeps coming back shortly after it has been
restored.

We dont have Anti-Virus scanning that directory. We have it listed in the
exceptions so it doesnt scan it.

Well, I will let you know how this turns out. Talk to you soon.

Well, last night I transfered the 5 roles over to DC2. I also did a D2 on
DC1. Now the good news is that it rebuilt the SYSVOL with some help of
creating two directories. What I am concerned about right now is that DC2 is
not updating the profiles. I am starting to see events of 13508 on DC2
showing replication issues. It is failing to replicate from DC1 to DC2.

Would re-building the connectors be advised? Or would doing a Directory
Service restore on DC2 be recommended?

I am still trying to figure out why replication isnt completely working. I
am starting to think it has to do with RPC connections which is why I want to
rebuild the connection. But I would have to do this on a weekend at night.

Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

Hi,

Not sure what you mean by re-building the connectors but I would highly
recommend to let the KCC do it on its own and not for you to create
manual connection objects.

I would point both these DC's to the PDC emulator for primary DNS.
I would then run the following commands on both DC's
ipconfig /flushdns & ipconfig /registerdns & net stop netlogon & net
start netlogon.
Go to Sites/Services and delete the connection objects from both
machines.
Then stop and start the NTFRS service.
Trigger the KCC by right clicking the NTDS Settings under the Domain
controllers in Sites/Services, all tasks and click Check Replication
Topology.
Wait for the connection objects to be recreated and then look for any
errors in the event logs.

Good luck

That was what I was refering to. I will give that a shot. Have you ever had
this interfere with users in a very noticable way? If not I will give this a
shot today. If it does interfere I will have to wait until Friday night to do
it. I havent done this part before so I want to make sure.

Hi,

It will not interfere with the end users as we are working on fixing
replication.
As long as the DC's and GC's are reachable, users will be ok.

Just make sure that the users are still pointed to a valid DNS server
is all I can think of.

Good luck

Well,

This was real fun. Yeah, I am being very sarcastic. Our update account
decided to log in on reboot going into Safe Mode w/ DS Restore Mode. It then
performed a DCPROMO and then applied EXCH2K SP3 for some reason. Afterwards,
the AD stopped on both servers and DC2 couldnt see DC1. Then DC1 couldnt see
the GC Server. Yeah!!. So I spent all day rebuilding my servers from scratch
because Backup Exec failed to start in Safe mode. Turns out that a pvl.mdb
file is required and wasnt there at all. It wasnt on any other server we had
nor on the disc that Veritas/Symantec claims it to be on. So restoring
SYSTATE was not going to happen via tape. So that left me manually rebuilding
the servers. Right now I am back at where I was before Journal_Wrap occured
again and the ADS stopped. Right now FRS runs for about 5-15 minutes then
stops. Event ID 13508 occurs and of course the lovely error for the service
stopping. This time though, DC2 cant replicate to DC1. If it wasnt for the
fun of what happened earlier, I would try that KCC idea again. But I been up
since 3am yesterday and it is now 1:22am. I am thinking of sleep. Anyway, I
could use some serious help here. I have been given full reign of my system
now. So any ideas are welcome. Thanks.

Hello Allen,

After reviewing the post log, I would appreciate it if you could help in
gathering the following information first:

Based on my experience, the issue could be related to several factors. To
troubleshoot the issue, we usually need to spend quite some time to perform
steps to find the problem causer due to complexity on technical side. I
appreciate your understanding and cooperation during the troubleshooting
process.

1. Run FRSDiag.exe on the DC1 and DC2.

File Replication Service Diagnostics Tool (FRSDiag.exe)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=43CB658E-8553-4DE7-
811A-562563EB5EBF&displaylang=en

2. Export the following registry key from the DC1 and DC2. NOTE: Before
sending the exported registry files to us, please change the file extension
from .reg to .txt.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs

3. Generate a Directory Services Edition (Mpsrpt_dirsvc.exe) of MPS report
on DC1 and DC2. For detailed instructions, please refer to the following MS
KB article:

818742.KB.EN-US Overview of the Microsoft Configuration Capture Utility
(MPS_REPORTS)
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;EN-US;818742

My e-mail address is: < (e-mail address removed) >.

Hope this helps.

Ada Pan,

Thanks for helping me out here. I thought of the FRSDiag but I ran into a
bind on it. Since it requires .Net Framework 1.1 I cant use it. We dont have
that installed and we cant install it because of our security requirements.
They wont bend on this even though it will really help me fix it. I am going
to run the MPS report tool and I will get that to you as soon as possible. Do
you know of any tools that run similar to FRSDiag that doesnt use .Net
Framework? I dont know of any but I will do some looking around. Thanks again.

Hi Ada Pan,

I sent you an email so you should get a report on DC2. I will send DC1 as
soon as I can. Thanks.
