This object monitors the DFS Replication configuration objects in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), and creates a Critical alert if it detects that an attribute of the configuration isn’t valid. It does so by looking for the presence of DFS Replication Event 6002.
An unhealthy state of this monitor indicates that a DFS Replication object in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) has an attribute that isn’t valid.
This issue can be caused by AD DS replication latencies if certain parts of the configuration information in AD DS have not yet replicated to the specified domain controller.
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.
If AD DS replication is working properly and the issue is still present, contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support (http://support.microsoft.com).
This monitor automatically resets to a healthy state after the issue is resolved.
