    Hi Guys,

    I have the following error on a server that is the only server in a 2003
    domain. Noticed that this has been happening for a couple of months now and
    we have no backup that pre-dates the error, any suggestions on how we can go
    forward? Is it ok to run through the instructions below do you think? Think
    it must have been caused by incorrectly configured AV that has been sorted

    Many thanks


    NTFRS 13568

    The File Replication Service has detected that the replica set "DOMAIN

    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

    [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

    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.


    Click down the key path:


    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
