Summary

This object monitors the DFS Replication service and creates a Critical alert if it stops.

Causes

An unhealthy state of this monitor indicates that the DFS Replication service is stopped. This can occur if an administrator stops the service for maintenance.

Resolutions

Wait for the DFS Replication service to start

To manually start the DFS Replication service, do one of the following:

  • From the Operations console, click Start DFS Replication Service.

  • Open an elevated command prompt window and then type the following command, where <servername>is the UNC path of the affected server: Sc <servername> start dfsr

Note: To start a service, you must be a member of the local Administrators group on the affected server. You can also start services using the Services snap-in, the Windows PowerShell Start-Service cmdlet, or command-line tools such as net start.
