I'm running Windows 2000 Server SP3 (Single Server)
When the Server re-booted, I have an error in the Event Log with the
following message below. I appreciate there has been similar post regarding
FRS errors, but I'm reluctant to try what the event suggests on recovery
("Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore") because I read in article 292438
advises against doing so, or at least until I can get some sound advice from
you guys. I have had it suggested by a colleague that increasing the size of
the "ntfrs journal size MB" would do it.
Please advise as to the best approach.
Event Type: Error
Event Source: NtFrs
Event Category: None
Event ID: 13568

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:\winnt\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.
 Volume "\\.\C:" has been formatted.
 The NTFS USN journal on volume "\\.\C:" has been deleted.
 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.
 File Replication Service was not running on this computer for a long
 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.
 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
 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
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.
