This object monitors the accessibility of the staging folder for a replicated folder and creates a Warning alert if the folder is inaccessible. If the staging folder is inaccessible, DFS Replication cannot replicate the affected replicated folder. This object monitors whether DFS Replication is successful in cleaning up (making additional space in) the staging folder for a replicated folder. If cleanup fails, this monitor creates a Warning alert. This object monitors the space available for DFS Replication to use to stage files for replication, and creates a Warning alert if there is not enough space. Large files might not replicate until more space is available for replication, potentially causing the replicated folder to become out of sync. This object monitors clustered replicated folders. This object monitors the cluster resources for clustered replicated folders. This object monitors the creation and updating of replicated folder cluster resources, and creates a Critical alert if DFS Replication cannot create or update the cluster resource for a replicated folder. This object monitors the updating of resource dependencies and replicated folder types (i.e. read-only or writeable), and creates a Warning alert if DFS Replication is unable to update either. This object monitors the disk space available on volumes with replicated folders or staging folders. This object monitors replication and creates a Warning alert if any files encrypted by using the Encrypting File System (EFS) are found in a replicated folder. DFS Replication doesn’t replicate files encrypted by EFS. This object monitors the DFS Replication database and determines if the database needs to be rebuilt. If the database must be rebuilt, replication pauses and a Warning alert is created. This object monitors the presence of reparse points in replicated folders and creates a Warning alert if it detects an unsupported reparse point type. This object monitors replicated folders that were recently brought online and creates a Warning alert if any of the replicated folders were offline for too many days. This object monitors replication and creates a Warning alert if replication stops due to an error. This object monitors replication and creates a Warning alert if replication stops. This object monitors replicated folder paths and creates a Warning alert if it detects that a folder is configured to replicate with both File Replication Service (FRS) and DFS Replication. This object monitors the inbound connections for replication groups in which a read-only replicated folder exists, and creates a Warning alert if a connection is missing. Without this missing connection, data in the folder will never be updated. This object monitors whether any replicated folders overlap (share the same folders) with the DFS Replication debug log files folder, and generates a Warning alert if any overlapping folders are found. Overlapping folders are unsupported. This object monitors whether any replicated folders overlap (share the same folders) with a system folder, and generates a Warning alert if any overlapping folders are found. Replicating the contents of System folders is unsupported, and replication will stop on any overlapping replicated folders. This object monitors whether replication has been disabled on any replicated folders and generates a Warning alert if it has. Replicated folders that are disabled do not replicate. This object monitors the local path of replicated folders and creates a Warning alert if the replicated folder is inaccessible. This object monitors the outbound connections for a replicated folder, and creates a Warning alert if a connection is missing. Without this connection, data in the replicated folder will never replicate to other members, and the replication group might experience other problems such as staging issues and problems with the DFS Replication database. This object monitors whether any replicated folders overlap (share the same folders) and generates a Warning alert if any overlapping folders are found. Overlapping replicated folders are unsupported and their data will not replicate. This object monitors the path for replicated folders in the DFS Replication database and in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), and generates a Warning alert if the paths do not match. When DFS Replication receives configuration information from AD DS for a replicated folder with the same name but a different path as an existing replicated folder, it discontinues replication of the existing folder and replaces it with the local path from AD DS. This object monitors replicated folder paths and creates a Warning alert if it detects that a replicated folder is located on a shared volume when the replication group member is not a failover cluster. This object monitors the path of the staging folder, and creates a Warning alert if it detects that the staging folder is located on a shared volume when the replication group member is not a failover cluster. This object monitors the replicated folder path for the SYSVOL folder, and creates a Warning alert if it detects that a SYSVOL replicated folder is located on a shared (cluster) volume. Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) is not supported on failover clusters, and the SYSVOL folder must be located in local storage. 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. Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) is not supported on failover clusters, and the SYSVOL folder must be located in local storage. This object monitors whether the configuration information for a connection or replication group in the local DFS Replication database matches the information received from Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). This monitor creates a Warning alert if the connection or replication group configuration is not identical in the local database and AD DS. This object monitors communication between replication partners and creates a Warning alert if any communication errors occur. This object monitors the ability of DFS Replication to contact other members of the replication group, and creates a Warning alert if cannot reach a member of the replication group. This object monitors the replication protocol version of each member of a replication group, and generates a Warning alert if the versions are incompatible. This object monitors the replication group configuration information received from Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) and creates a Warning alert if the replication group configuration is incomplete or references an object that doesn’t exist. This object monitors connections between members of a replication group, and creates a Warning alert if any connections are disabled. This object monitors connections for a replication group and creates a Warning alert if it detects missing connections or one-way connections.              This object monitors the NTFS change journal on volumes hosting replicated folders, and creates a Warning alert if the change journal is not accessible.            This object monitors the creation of NTFS change journals for volumes hosting replicated folders for which a change journal doesn’t already exist, and creates a Warning alert if creating the journal fails. This object monitors the ability of DFS Replication to recover from a wrap (overwrite of old journal entries) of the NTFS change journal. This object monitors the NTFS change journal, and creates a Warning alert if the journal wraps (overwrites old journal entries) on a volume hosting a replicated folder. This object monitors the DFS Replication database, and creates a Warning alert if any errors occur from which DFS Replication cannot automatically recover. This object monitors the shutdown process of the DFS Replication service, and creates a Warning alert if the service shut down abruptly or if a volume hosting a replicated folder went offline abruptly. This object monitors the volume database and creates a Warning alert if the database needs to be recreated. This object monitors volumes that host replicated folders and creates a Warning alert if any errors are detected on the volume that would cause DFS Replication to stop replication. This object monitors the NTFS change journal and creates a Warning alert if the journal wraps (overwrites old journal entries) twice in the past 24 hours on a volume hosting a replicated folder. This object monitors the volumes hosting replicated folders and creates a Warning alert if it detects volumes with conflicting configuration hosting a replicated folder. This object monitors volumes used to host replicated folders and creates a Warning alert if any of the volume are unsupported. This object monitors the deletion of the replicated folder cluster resource from a failover cluster, and creates a Warning alert if it detects that the resource wasn’t deleted. This object monitors clustered replicated folders, and creates a Critical alert if it detects that a clustered replicated folder is not able to initialize. This object monitors clustered replicated folders and creates a Critical alert if it detects that a replication group contains a clustered file server instance and a node of the same failover cluster. This object monitors replication group membership, and creates a Critical alert if it detects that a replication group contains more than one member from the same failover cluster. This object monitors the folder path for clustered replicated folders, and creates a Critical alert if it detects that the folder is not on a disk in the same clustered file server instance (resource group) that will host the replicated folder. This object monitors the path of clustered replicated folders and their staging folders, and creates a Critical alert if it detects that the replicated folder path or staging folder path is offline. This object monitors clustered replicated folders, and creates a Critical alert if it detects that a clustered replicated folder is located in local storage on a node instead of shared storage. This object monitors the staging folder path for clustered replicated folders and creates a Critical alert if it detects that the staging folder is not on a disk in the same clustered file server instance (resource group) that will host the replicated folder. This object monitors the staging folder path for clustered replicated folders, and creates a Critical alert if it detects that the staging folder is located on a cluster node’s local storage instead of shared storage. This object monitors restore operations on read-only replicated folders and creates a Critical alert if an administrator attempts to authoritatively restore a read-only replicated folder. A replicated folder is a folder that stays synchronized on each member of a replication group. This class represents a member of a replication group (a server that uses DFS Replication to synchronize files with another server). This class represents a list of volumes that store replicated folders. A clustered replicated folder is a replicated folder hosted by a failover cluster. A read-only replicated folder is a replicated folder on a particular member in which users cannot add or change files.
