This object monitors the replication group configuration information received from Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), and creates a Warning alert if the replication group configuration is incomplete or references an object that doesn’t exist. It does so by looking for the presence of DFS Replication Event 6606.
An unhealthy state of this monitor indicates that DFS Replication detected replication group configuration that is incomplete or references an object that doesn’t exist. This is a rare event that can occur for the following reasons:
Latency in AD DS replication
Partial deletion of DFS Replication membership objects in AD DS that corresponded to a deleted replicated folder
Manual editing of AD DS objects
Wait for configuration changes to replicate with AD DS
DFS Replication will retry this operation, which usually resolves automatically after configuration changes replicate through AD DS.
To poll immediately for configuration changes, open a command prompt window and then type the following command once for each member of the replication group, where <domain> is the domain the server is located in and <server> is the server name: Dfsrdiag PollAD /Member:<domain>\<server>
If this problem persists, verify that AD DS replication is working and that the service is able to reach a domain controller. If the problem persists for 8 hours, the DFS Replication service will disable the connection and log DFS Replication Event 5016.
This monitor automatically resets to a healthy state after the problem is resolved and DFS Replication Event 6014 is detected or the DFS Replication service is restarted.
