This is a full mesh topology with 6 nodes and 256 Mbps bandwidth,
bi-directional connections. Replication of the original files has
essentially halted 250,000 files short of the source directory contents. At
least 150 GB of free space remains on the replication drive for each node.
Dropping a test file into any of the replication directories results in full
replication to all nodes.

Could any of these apply to the missing files?


The default file filters exclude the following files from replication:

--File names starting with a tilde (~) character

--Files with .bak or .tmp extensions


Regardless of which filters are set, the following types files are always
excluded from replication:

--NTFS mounted drives.

--Files encrypted by using encrypting file system (EFS).

--Files on which the temporary attribute has been set.

With respect to the first part of your question, nothing but the default
filters were in use. The default filters have been deleted. There are no
files that match the default filter criteria. The test source consists of 47
directories named sequentially from dir.11054 to dir.11100. Each source
directory contains 10,000, 1 KB files named file file-10000.1k to
file-19999.1k and contain random binary data generated with VBScript.
Properties for the source test directory indicate 470,000 files.

The second part of your question is somewhat confusing as all of the file
systems involved are NTFS. Is the question supposed to be that NFS mounted
drives or NTFS mapped shares are excluded? SFU is installed on all of the
source and destination nodes so even though it would be possible to NFS mount
exported file systems, that is not the case. There are no Encrypted File
Systems on either the source or destination the nodes.

Since the test data was generated with a VBScript with no file attributes
modified, and we have verified the source, it is unlikely that there are
Temporary Attributes set. (None of the Explorer GUI, Command Prompt
utilities (attrib), or file advanced property pages appear to have the
capability to display attributes beyond a value of 39 (SHRA). Apparently,
even the FSO GetFile.Attributes will not set or display Temporary Attributes
(and others beyond 39). How does MS recommend displaying/setting the
Temporary Attribute (256?) setting? Any chance of this being the same as the
UNIX/Linux 'sticky' bit that can be modified with chmod and displayed with ls
in SFU?

The strange thing is that all of the directories were created correctly and
some even fully replicated. Many of the directories are either empty or only
partially replicated while dfsrdiag backlog is reporting all member nodes in
synch.

Is there anything in the event viewer that may indicate a failure?

You can mount a NTFS volume on a volume, DFSR will not traverse the mounted
volume.

It is unlikely that the TMP attrib was set. It can only be done
programmatically and if you created the files it is very unlikely that it
is set. This blog post discusses non replicating files and the TMP attrib.

Robert,

Thanks for the suggestion to use fsutil to verify the Temporary Attribute.
None are set in the source directories that are failing to replicate and no
event log error messages are associated with this replication
folder/connection.

Any suggestions as to what to look at next or are there any other diagnostic
utilities to continue the troubleshooting process?

TIA

Greetings Robert & Jill,

This is getting curiouser and curiouser.

By way of example: Folder dir.11054 contains 10,000 test files on the source
directory and only 1,532 files have replicated to each of the destination
nodes. The file named file-10000.1K has successfully replicated while the
file named file-19999.1K has not. Modifying either of the files on the
source results in the USN incrementing but only file-10000.1K changes on the
destination while file-19999.1K is still not replicated.

No event log warning or error messages in Application, Security, System or
DFS Replication, both File and Subfolder filters removed, no default filtered
file names, and as you can see from fsutil, no temporary attributes.

Any ideas as to what might be limiting replication and how to proceed with
investigating this problem?

TIA

also run both of these commands when thinking about backlogs. DFSR has two
"one-way" connections and since your command log doesn't indicate what
machine you are operating on it is possible that there is a backlog on the
"other" connection

dfsrdiag backlog /RGName:Replication /RFName:Replication.00 /SMem:oncours22
/RMem:oncours10 /v
dfsrdiag backlog /RGName:Replication /RFName:Replication.00 /SMem:oncours10

Greetings Robert,

I've included the requested abbreviated dfsrdiag output for nodes 11, 12,
20, and 21 and the verbose output for nodes 10 and 22 below. As you can see
from the listings, all nodes are indicating "sync with partner" and no
backlog.

Here's a little bit of background on this configuration. Three test servers
are located in Ashburn, VA and three are located in Dallas, TX in a full
mesh configuration. There are 470,000 files in the directory on
\\ONCOURS22 and replication appears to have stopped with only 220,601 files
on each of the other nodes. Available bandwidth is gigabit Ethernet into
the AT&T OC48/OC192 backbone.

Is there a command to 'rescan' or 'resync' the source and destination nodes
perhaps?

TIA

also run both of these commands when thinking about backlogs. DFSR has two
"one-way" connections and since your command log doesn't indicate what
machine you are operating on it is possible that there is a backlog on the
"other" connection
dfsrdiag backlog /RGName:Replication /RFName:Replication.00
/SMem:oncours22
/RMem:oncours10 /v
dfsrdiag backlog /RGName:Replication /RFName:Replication.00
/SMem:oncours10
/RMem:oncours22 /v
Thanks,

There is not a way to rescan the file system. You can query WMI on the
server that originated the files to see if they are known the in DFSR DB.
The table you want is IdRecordInfo. you can use wbemtest or wmic to get
this info. It's a pretty big query though.

This problem is may be beyond solving in newsgroups. At this point, debug
logs seem necessary. Look at a few debug logs on the originating machine
and a partner machine (they are located c:\windows\debug\dfsr*.log), if
anything looks blatantly obvious then reply back to newsgroup. Otherwise,
I suggest opening a support call with our PSS folks.

Thanks,
