FRS staging problem

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by Jørn Jørgensen, Sep 1, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    We are having some trouble with the FRS staging area becoming full on some
    of our servers, ultimately stopping FRS. When inspecting the \FRS-Staging
    folder there seems to be a lot of old files in it, like dated a month or
    even two back.

    Is it safe to delete files from the \FRS-staging folder? Our main concern is
    getting FRS back to working condition, we can worry about the cause of the
    problem later.

    Alternatively, is there any other way to 'reset' the file replication
    (without turning off replication and turning it back on again)?

    Thanks in advance!

    I also have some old files in my FRS-Staging folder. I have over 100 files
    going back for 3 days.

    What are the possible causes for "old" items to be left in the FRS-Staging
    directory and how do they get cleaned up?

    Thanks

  3. I have a similar problem (month-old files in FRS-Staging) but, repopulating
    the all the replicas on this server is almost unthinkable (multiple replicas,
    slow links, etc.) Is it possible to know from where and when these files
    have been created?

    In your resolution you mention "delete the connection", do you mean the DFS
    replica or the network connection?

  4. I got over the staging area filling up by doubling it;s size.

    Not the cleanest solution but it worked.

    hope this helps
