    I am trying to get a Windows 2003 SBS SP1server to replicate to a newly
    added Server 2003 SP2 Domain Controller. Replication has stalled. The
    source server has the following error in the File Replication Service Event
    Log:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: NtFrs
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 13568
    Date: 05/08/2008
    Time: 12:32:41 PM
    User: N/A
    Computer: HPS001
    Description:
    The File Replication Service has detected that the replica set "DOMAIN
    SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)" is in JRNL_WRAP_ERROR.

    Replica set name is : "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)"
    Replica root path is : "c:\windows\sysvol\domain"
    Replica root volume is : "\\.\C:"
    A Replica set hits JRNL_WRAP_ERROR when the record that it is trying to
    read from the NTFS USN journal is not found. This can occur because of one
    of the following reasons.

    [1] Volume "\\.\C:" has been formatted.
    [2] The NTFS USN journal on volume "\\.\C:" has been deleted.
    [3] The NTFS USN journal on volume "\\.\C:" has been truncated. Chkdsk can
    truncate the journal if it finds corrupt entries at the end of the journal.
    [4] File Replication Service was not running on this computer for a long
    time.
    [5] File Replication Service could not keep up with the rate of Disk IO
    activity on "\\.\C:".
    Setting the "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" registry parameter to 1
    will cause the following recovery steps to be taken to automatically recover
    from this error state.
    [1] At the first poll, which will occur in 5 minutes, this computer will be
    deleted from the replica set. If you do not want to wait 5 minutes, then run
    "net stop ntfrs" followed by "net start ntfrs" to restart the File
    Replication Service.
    [2] At the poll following the deletion this computer will be re-added to
    the replica set. The re-addition will trigger a full tree sync for the
    replica set.

    WARNING: During the recovery process data in the replica tree may be
    unavailable. You should reset the registry parameter described above to 0 to
    prevent automatic recovery from making the data unexpectedly unavailable if
    this error condition occurs again.

    To change this registry parameter, run regedit.

    Click on Start, Run and type regedit.

    Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
    Click down the key path:
    "System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters"
    Double click on the value name
    "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore"
    and update the value.

    If the value name is not present you may add it with the New->DWORD Value
    function under the Edit Menu item. Type the value name exactly as shown
    above.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    This server had a crash recently and CHKDSK found errors on the disk The
    server seems healthy except for the above errors

    I made the suggested registry entry and stopped and started the service but
    it has not fixed the error.

    The destination server has the following error (multiple times) in the File
    Replication Service Event Log:

    Event Type: Warning
    Event Source: NtFrs
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 13508
    Date: 5/08/2008
    Time: 1:30:43 PM
    User: N/A
    Computer: MIGRATIONDC
    Description:
    The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from
    HPS001 to MIGRATIONDC for c:\windows\sysvol\domain using the DNS name
    HPS001.herzigprosser.local. FRS will keep retrying.
    Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.

    [1] FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name HPS001.herzigprosser.local
    from this computer.
    [2] FRS is not running on HPS001.herzigprosser.local.
    [3] The topology information in the Active Directory for this replica has
    not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.

    This event log message will appear once per connection, After the problem
    is fixed you will see another event log message indicating that the
    connection has been established.

    I found that I had not put spaces between the words in the registry value
    :). I'm now getting:

    Event Type: Warning
    Event Source: NtFrs
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 13560
    Date: 05/08/2008
    Time: 2:55:19 PM
    User: N/A
    Computer: HPS001
    Description:
    The File Replication Service is deleting this computer from the replica set
    "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)" as an attempt to recover from the
    error state,
    Error status = FrsErrorSuccess
    At the next poll, which will occur in 5 minutes, this computer will be
    re-added to the replica set. The re-addition will trigger a full tree sync
    for the replica set.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at

    Hopefully this will fix it.

    Hi Cris,

    It was the registry value mentioned above:

    System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters\Enable Journal Wrap
    Automatic Restore=1

    followed by a restart of replication service. It's nice when the fix is
    given in the event log :)

    Cheers,
    Bill

    Oh, and don't forget to change the registry value back to 0 or the system
    will have to rebuild the journal, etc. every time ntfrs restarts!
