Summary

This object monitors the local path of replicated folders, and creates a Warning alert if the replicated folder is inaccessible. It does so by looking for the presence of DFS Replication Event 6404.

Causes

An unhealthy state of this monitor indicates that replication failed because the local path of a replicated folder was inaccessible. This can occur if the volume storing the folder is offline.

Resolutions

Fix the path of the replicated folder

To resolve this issue, confirm that the local path of the replicated folder is available, and bring the volume online if necessary.

If the path has changed, you must remove the server’s membership in the replication group and recreate it. Doing so requires membership in the Domain Admins group or delegated permissions.

Correct the replicated folder permissions

If the DFS Replication service doesn’t have Full Control permissions to the replicated folder and staging folder, replication will fail. To resolve this issue, grant the local System account Full Controlpermissions to the replicated folder and subfolders as well as the staging folder (if located outside of the replicated folder).

Verification

This monitor automatically resets to a healthy state after DFS Replication successfully initializes the replicated folder.
