  • Problems with shared Excel files disappearing with DFSR on Server 2003 R2

    Hello all,
    We have a problem while saving Excel files that are "shared" (multiple user editing) in DFS replicated network folder.
    The excel file automatically moves in the conflict and deleted folder when the users save the file on one DFSR member server and on another DFSR member the excel file is there but not updated.

    Environment:
    2 x Server 2003 R2 (hosting shared Excel files in a network share, with two-way DFS replication between them)

    Limit your replicated folder set to a single referral - you dont want to enable referrals on both since older versions of DFSr had poor conflict resolution algorithms.

    Have you used dfsrdiag to see whats happening? Its a great tool for looking at replication status.
    Rules of life:
    1. Never do anything that requires thinking after 2:30 PM
    2. Simplicity is godliness
    3. Scale with extreme prejudice
