This object monitors replication and creates a Warning alert if replication stops, as indicated by DFS Replication Event 4008.
An unhealthy state of this monitor indicates that replication has stopped on a replicated folder. This can occur if the local path of the replicated folder on a particular member has changed or the volume storing the replicated folder is offline.
Note: If an administrator disables the member’s connection to a replication group or disables the membership in the replication group, DFS Replication logs Event 4114, resets this monitor to a healthy state, and generates an alert for the following monitor: DFS-R: Replicated Folder Enabled Status.
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 replicated folder and recreate it. Doing so requires membership in the Domain Admins group or delegated permissions.
After replication starts, this monitor automatically resets to a healthy state.
To manually confirm that replication is healthy, run a propagation test on the affected folder by using DFS Management or the following commands, where <ReplicationGroup>is the name of the replication group and <ReplicatedFolder>is the name of the replicated folder:
dfsrdiag propagationtest /rgname:"<ReplicationGroup>" /rfname:"<ReplicatedFolder>" /testfilename:DFS-RTestFile.xml
dfsrdiag propagationreport /rgname:"<ReplicationGroup>" /rfname:"<ReplicatedFolder>" /testfilename:DFS-RTestFile.xml /reportfilename:c:\DFS-R_Report.xml
