The DFS Replication service may register this event if it failed to restart after a backup or restore operation. This failure may occur if the service encountered an internal error. The DFS Replication service must be restarted manually to recover from this error.
Anti-event: 1104, 1004
When a backup application informs the VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) of its intention to backup a volume containing a DFS Replicated folder, the DFS Replication service pauses replication and brings itself into a consistent state. VSS then takes a snapshot of the volume so that the backup application can back up data from the snapshot. A similar process takes place for restore operations.
Once the snapshot required for the backup/restore operation is created, VSS instructs all paused applications to resume. This error may be registered if the DFS Replication service was unable to resume replication activity after a backup or restore operation was completed.
No user action is required – the DFS Replication service will attempt to automatically start DFS Replication after 30 minutes.
To manually start the DFS Replication service from the Operations console, click Start DFS Replication service. To do so from a command prompt, open a command prompt window and then type the following command: net start dfsr
To verify that the DFS Replication service is running from the Operations console, DFS Replication service Status.
If restart attempts fail, check the status of your backup application to see whether it is still accessing files used by DFS Replication.
