  • DFS Issue

    Hello All Techs,

    I am having issue with DFSR. here is an information about my Environment.
    • DC01 - AD, DNS - Domain Function level is 2008

    • DFS01 - Windows Storage Server 2008 - Existing DFS Members

    • DFS02 - Windows Storage Server 2008 - Existing DFS Members

    • DFS03 - Windows Server 2012 Standard - New DFS Member

    Here is what i what to do:

    I want to deploy DFS on our New DFS03 server and it should replication with DFS01 only. Later when the replication between DFS01 and DFS03 will be verified and find successful. I would remove the DFS02 from DFS as don't need it.

    Here is what i have done so far:

    Installed the DFS Role on DFS03 server.

    Setup the DFS initial configuration.
    Open the DFS Management Snap-In
    Checked and found that i can see all the Namespaces and Replication Groups listed when i try adding it to display.

    Now, i have added one Replication Group to display on DFS03. and added the DFS03 server as a new member. What happened now is that in DFS01 server that DFS group is showing an exclamation mark. And when i click on it, it says:

    "The replication group cannot be queried. The replication group's version number is not supported this MMC snap-in"

    So, what is did is created new folder on the DFSRoot of DFS01 server and added a new NameSpace and Replication Group and Added DFS03 as the secondary member to replicate. It works.

    Again, when i choose another Replication Group Folder on DFS01 server and add DFS03 server as member. But didn't work. However, what happened here is now is very strange:
    I can see that Replication Group on DFS02 and DFS03 but NOT on DFS01 anymore.

    Please help..

    Interesting... What does the relevant event log say on these servers?
