Many backlogged files

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by Juergen Heckel, Jun 18, 2004.

  1. Hi,
    I had and have a perfectly running file replication without any errors
    between two w2k3 DCs.
    But after upgrading the first DC from w2k to w2k3 with some problems
    (now all are solved) I have 1000+ backlogged files on both servers shown
    by SONAR.
    I waited two days but their number stays unchanged.
    What can I do?
    Should I delete the ntfrs.jdb and the corresponding logfiles (of course
    with stopping and starting the ntfrs service)?

  2. If at all possible, upgrade all replica members to the latest version of

    For Windows 2000 install the release of Ntfrs.exe described in article
    815473, "File Replication Service Does Not Log Errors on Sharing Violations"

    For Windows Server 2003, install the pre-Service Pack 1 release of Ntfrs.exe
    as described in article 823230, "Issues That Are Fixed in the Pre-Service
    Pack 1 Release of Ntfrs.exe" at

    Install these fixes (get them from MS support) and allow the systems to sit
    for a while and see if you made any progress. If you didn't you may need to
    go on and troubleshoot further but I would start with the above.

  3. Hi,
    thank you.
    I have already the latest FRS patches.

  4. Do you have any events being logged of interest by chance in any of the logs
    (FRS /System/DS)?

  5. Hi,
    sorry no. I have this problem since the upgrade difficulties.
    In the meantime I deleted the replica set and reinstalled it (after 1
    hour) and now the backlogged files are gone.
    But another replica set shows 200+ sharing violations in the FRSinlog
    file. As these are old files too: where are these entries stored
    (deleting the replica set doesn't help)?

  6. Do you by chance have any anti virus program or related software that may be
    keeping them open?

  7. Hi,
    these files do not exist (only in the ntfrs.jdb), so I deleted the jet
    database and now (after rebuilding) all seems to be ok.
