DFS Out of Sync

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by Brock Hensley, Apr 27, 2009.

  1. Hello,

    I have a DFS Replication group which, according to an XCOPY /L states that
    the receiving server is missing several files.

    According to a DFSRDIAG Backlog check, the servers are "in sync with
    partner" with No backlog.

    Whats the best procedure to re-sync the files to ensure the content of each
    are the same?

    Thanks,

    Right out of the box DFSR excludes files to be replicated like .tmp files.
    Did you remove the default exclusions?

    There is nothing wrong with the procedure you used.
