This object monitors the deletion of the replicated folder cluster resource from a failover cluster, and creates a Warning alert if it detects that the resource wasn’t deleted. It does so by looking for the presence of DFS Replication Event 9004.
An unhealthy state of this monitor indicates that DFS Replication failed to delete a replicated folder cluster resource. This can occur if the clustered file server instance isn’t online.
Confirm that the failover cluster resource is online
If the server is a member of a failover cluster, confirm that the DFS Replication resource is online.
To confirm that a cluster resource is online using the Windows interface
Open Failover Cluster Manager on the affected server and confirm that the status of the appropriate clustered file server instance is Online. If it isn’t, select the appropriate resource and then click Bring this service or application online.
To confirm that a cluster resource is online using Windows PowerShell
Open a Windows PowerShell™ command prompt window while logged on with an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on the failover cluster, and then type the following command, where <replicatedfolder_rootpath> is the root path of the replicated folder hosted by the clustered file server instance:
get-wmiobject -namespace root\mscluster -class MSCluster_Resource -Filter "name='DFSR <replicatedfolder_rootpath>'"
If the resource is online, the value of the State field should be 2.
Important: Add a second backslash (\) before any backslashes in the replicated folder root path. For example d:\shares\public would be written as d:\\shares\\public.
DFS Replication will periodically retry this operation.
This monitor automatically resets to a healthy state after this issue is resolved.
