DFSR Event 5014 - AD Replication 2008

Postby guest » Thu Jul 29, 2010 11:37 am

Hi, I have seen a few forums regarding the same issue, but I am still not 100% sure what to do.

We have Active Directory running on Server 2008 SP1.
We are running DCPROMO across the WAN for remote sites. Speed of links vary, and I understand this will cause delays in replication etc.
Therefore, we are making use of the Ntdsutil command "Create Full" and taking a copy of NTDS to the remote site and using DCPROMO /adv to initiate the process. (I wish we had R2 to make use of the "Create SYSVOL Full")
the SYSVOL folder then begins to replicate, which is about 350mb.
Throughout the DFSR process of Sysvol, we continually get Event 5004 (Stopping communication with partner xxxxxxx for replication group..... "The Remote procedure call failed" or "the RPC Server is unavailable). I can telnet on port 135.
About 10ms after we get the warning, we get event 5004, "The DFS Replication Service successfully established an inbound connection with partner xxxxxx for replication group Domain System Volume"

1) is this something i should be concerned about? I find myself worrying that replication is failing, rebooting remote DC's regularly etc until replication is complete.
2) I have been assured there is no firewall issues, but I am not sure. If I run the command to fix the DFRS RPC port, do i need to run it on all the DC's at once? or can i run it on 1 DC to test? If i run it for 1 DC, do i need to run it for both partners (Server1 and Server2)?
3)If i copy the SYSVOL folder from an existing DC into the c:\windows\sysvol of a remote DC, will that speed things up or cause problems?
4)any other suggestions?

I really would appreciate any help as we still have about 15 Domain Controllers to promote. Once the DC is up and running, all appears to be ok, although we do still get the Event 5014 logged.

Thanks
Carl

Hi,



You may try to input DFSmgmt.msc in Start run box to check if the DFS management console can be launched on that server. If not, please install DFS role to get the report.



Thanks.
