    I have a HQ office and 2 remote offices, all running windows 2003 R2. I have
    been replicating to remote offices with no problem, until recently. I added a
    SAN that connects directly to the HQ server thru scsi channel. I moved the
    shared from existing volume to the SAN volume, and since doing it I have not
    been able to get the data to replicate the 2 remote sites.
    I am getting event ID 6002, "The DFS Replication service detected invalid
    msDFSR-Subscriber object data while polling for configuration information."
    and also event ID 5012 "The DFS Replication service failed to communicate
    with partner WESTPORT for replication group harvest.local\root\home. The
    partner did not recognize the connection or the replication group
    configuration. "

    How do I go about in fixing this?

    thanks in advacnce

  3. Joe,
    It depends what you mean by moving the Share.
    You can't just move the data and have FRS continue. The local FRS service
    manages replication to a physical server location, not a network share.
    Your best bet is to delete the replication entirely and start again,
