  • DFS "Not Eligible" ??

    All server running 2003, SP2 (not SBS)


    I have DFS replcation setup on 3 server and one of them showing "Not Eligible" status ,, under show replication status

    Target status file replication

    server 1 Online Not eligible
    server 2 online Enabled
    server 3 online Enabled

    I have just added another DC with DFS replication. Replication seems to be working but now i get

    Target Status file replication

    Server 1 online Enabled
    Server 2 online Enabled
    Server 3 online Enabled
    Server 4 Online Not eligible


    What the hell happen? seems like "Not eligible" status just got tranfered to the new server. Is that normal? does that mean it became primary DFS and doesn't replicate or something?

    Does anyone have anyidea? what going on here, Google search didn't help

    I will be adding Server 5 in few weeks time so that mean then "Not eligible" will get transfer to the new server 5 again?

      You probably checked this but are you sure all Operating systems run Windows 2003 SP2 and you do not have mixed environment like R2 servers as well. DFS Servers should all be equal.

        ZRider,
        As you should know with 34 previous posts, board members give their time voluntarily to help out and try to solve problems. 48 hours is not an unreasonable time to wait given we all have real lives outside of Petri

        If you really need support that quickly, phone Microsoft, give your credit card details, and they will raise an incident with higher priority. If not, please give us a chance and don't bump your own post up.

                    Please be careful of your wording. You probably don't mean it but your phrasing is a mild from of swearing in English.
