We have two FileServers, which have DFSR configured on a lot of shares, so the data can be replicated. Now I have a issue with DFSR not replicating. Ensure the file is not locked or exclude that file from being replicated, if it is not needed. Run the command line- “dfsrdiag backlog /rgname:’Group Name’. Q: Replicating SYSVOL by using DFSR isn’t working in my Active Directory replication and other domain controllers have stopped replication.
