Summary

This object monitors the path of the staging folder for the SYSVOL folder, and creates a Warning alert if it detects that the staging folder is located on a shared (cluster) volume. It does so by looking for the presence of DFS Replication Event 9109.

Causes

An unhealthy state of this monitor indicates that an administrator configured the staging folder to be located in shared (cluster) storage. Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) is not supported on failover clusters, and the SYSVOL folder must be located in local storage.

Resolutions

Change the staging folder path to local storage

Use DFS Management to change the location of the staging folder to a local volume that is not part of shared storage. 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 when it detects that the staging folder is no longer located in shared storage.
