  • File replication service

    I'm getting the following error on multiple servers

    The file replication is having trouble enabling replication from Server1 to server2 c:\winnt\sysvol\domain using DNS name DOMAIN_NAME. FRS will keep retrtying.

    Server1 is always the same of on the error message.

    Can someone please tell me how this can be fixed.

    Thank you,.

    Is the AD replication to/from server1 working ?
    Use replmon (support tools) or repadmin.exe to check replication.

      active directory replication

      yes, the active directory server is working. Server1 is actually is a spare servers, and server2 is the one with active directory running, which is working properly.
