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 located in local storage on a node instead of shared storage. It does so by looking for the presence of DFS Replication Event 9102.

Causes

An unhealthy state of this monitor indicates that the staging folder for a clustered replicated folder is located on a local disk on a single node. This can occur if an administrator changes the path of the staging folder to a local disk instead of shared storage. Clustered replicated folders and their staging folders must be located on shared storage.

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.
