Summary

The DFS Replication service may register this event if it fails to create an NTFS change journal on the specified volume. Replication will be disabled for all replicated folders on the volume until the change journal can be created.

Event: 2210

Anti-events: 2002, 2008, 2010, 1004, 1104

Causes

The NTFS change journal is required by the DFS Replication service so that it can keep track of changes occurring to the contents of the replicated folder. This helps it replicate changed files to the replication partners in that replication group.

The service may register this event if it failed to create an NTFS change journal on the specified volume. The system requires a minimum of 512 MB of free space on the volume to be able to recreate the journal. The service will not be able to replicate files located on the specified volume until this issue is fixed.

Resolutions

Verify that there is at least 512 MB of free space on the specified volume. If the journal has an internal error and 512 MB of space cannot be recovered by moving or deleting files, running chkdsk on the volume will recover the space used by the corrupt journal. After freeing up space, restart the DFS Replication service.

To restart the DFS Replication service in Operations console, click the Stop DFS Replication Service task, and then click the Start DFS Replication Service task.

If there isn’t enough free space available on the volume to create the NTFS change journal, consider relocating the replicated folder to another volume which has adequate free space available.
