Discussion:
DFS and Disk Quotas

Just in case you haven't got this resolved yet, or if other people are having the same problem:

Do you have size quotas set at all on any replicated folders?

Every time I run into problems with DFS it is because of quotas.

We have students at site A and site B, their home folders are replicated between the servers, but the quotas are disk specific. If the student fills up their quota on one server it will almost always fill it on the other server too, run into all sorts of problems.

So when I'm getting these errors every 5 minutes, it is because the connection is actually timing out between the two servers because it is trying so hard to replicate (but it can't because there isn't enough free disk space for the files because of quotas).

We have three servers replicating, 2 finished initial replication and one is
in progress but appears stalled - ie count of moved files is not increasing.
On all servers we are getting repeated incidents of event 5014 and 5004 every
5 minutes. The events have always been present but I got two servers to line
out with them there - still I am concerend they may offer some clue to my
current issue. The servers are connected via a Sonicwall VPN cloud, all are
in different cities. Ping between the servers never times out, its
continuous. The server which will not complete is W2008 and I can see in the
network monitor that the DFSR service is using 1 Mbps on a continuous basis.

Thoughts?

Errors below.

Hi
I've got these events repeating over and over again in our event log, connected by a SonicWALL Site to Site VPN cloud as well.

Some of the smaller folders replicate, but the larger folders with 70GB or so and several thousand files are having trouble completing replication.

One thing I did was increased the staging quota for each replicated folder to 16GB on the Branch (Source) Server. This helped a little bit but after 60 days initial replication has still not completed.

Wondering if anybody else knows what could be wrong?

Hi

I was getting the same problem on the replication partner, but the primar
member was OK. It turned out the the Switch port connecting the partner was
set to 100 Half and the partner server was set to 100 full.

Try hard setting the server NIC seed to a set speed of the switch
