DFSR Error (WMI/AD Problem)

    Hi people. I am setting up DFSR to replicate a folder between 2 servers:
    Alpha and Bravo. Both servers are 2003 Ent R2.

    I have gone through using WMIDIAG.VBS and made sure all tests are passed.
    Also DCDIAG and the R2 ADPREP /FORESTPREP are all successful.

    I am also made sure AD between 2 DCs AD01 and AD03 are replicated.

    Using ASDIEDIT I have made sure the security for CNs exists and are readable
    by SYSTEM as well.

    I have created a few different Replication groups for testing but same thing
    happens. It has been more than 24 hours so propagation time wont be a cause.

    After creating the Replication Group the folders never replicated and I am
    getting 3 different errors:

    1. DFS Management Diagnostic shows:

    For server Alpha:
    a) Due to the following error, the DFS Replication reporting mechanism
    cannot access the WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) namespace to
    retrieve certain reporting information. Error ID: 0x80041002

    b) Backlog calculations cannot be performed because DFS Replication
    encountered the following error while accessing the Windows Management
    Instrumentation (WMI) repository to retrieve version vectors from this
    member: Access is denied. , see WMI help to resolve the error string.

    For server Bravo:
    a) Due to the following error, the DFS Replication reporting mechanism
    cannot access the WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) namespace to
    retrieve certain reporting information. Error ID: 0x80041002.

    2. Eventlog in windows shows:

    For server Alpha:
    The DFS Replication service detected inconsistent msDFSR-Subscriber object
    while polling for configuration information. The object at
    CN=14a6fa55-7b9c-4e78-86ca-56b2c7c2bef2,CN=DFSR-LocalSettings,CN=ALPHA,CN=Computers,DC=abc,DC=lan
    references another object at

    Additional Information:

    For server Bravo:

    The DFS Replication service detected inconsistent msDFSR-Subscriber object
    while polling for configuration information. The object at
    CN=6aad985a-2406-4471-87b7-45a6332a7db8,CN=DFSR-LocalSettings,CN=BRAVO,CN=Computers,DC=abc,DC=lan

    Additional Information:

  2. b) Backlog calculations cannot be performed because DFS Replication


    What is the event ID for this?

    We had the same thing happen with a few servers here and it is a permissions
    problem with the DFSR ServerHealthReport class, dcom object on the server
    that is being accessed. I found a article that tells how to set the correct
    permissions and I think it was by the event ID.

    Hi Danny,

    Thanks for your reply. But this is the only output I have got. For error a
    it is 0x80041002 and for error b it doesn't give an error id. The windows
    event log gives 6006 from DFSR though. Does that ring any bells?

    Cheers,

    Alvin
