Summary

This object monitors the staging folder path for clustered replicated folders and creates a Critical alert if it detects that the staging folder is not on a disk in the same clustered file server instance (resource group) that will host the replicated folder. It does so by looking for the presence of DFS Replication Event 9105.

Causes

An unhealthy state of this monitor indicates that the staging folder for a clustered replicated folder is not on a disk in the same clustered file server instance that will host the replicated folder. This can occur if an administrator adds a clustered file server instance to a replication group and specifies a custom staging folder location for the replication group that is located on a disk owned by a different clustered file server instance. The cluster resource for the replicated folder will not be created until this the staging folder is relocated to a disk that belongs to the correct clustered file server instance.

Resolutions

Change the staging folder path

Use DFS Management to change the location of the staging folder. To do so, see Edit the Quota Size of the Staging Folder and Conflict and Deleted Folder (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=186944).

Note: To manage a replicated folder you must be a member of the Domain Admins group in the domain in which the replication group is configured, the creator of the replication group, or have been delegated permissions.

Verification

This monitor automatically resets to a healthy state after this issue is resolved.
