    I'm getting an error in the File Replication Service event log:

    Event ID = 13562

    Source = NtFrs

    Description = Following is the summary of warnings and errors encountered by File Replication Service while polling the Domain Controller <domain controller DNS name> for FRS replica set configuration information. Could not find computer object for this computer. Will try again at next polling cycle.

    From what i've found out so far is that i need to do the following:


    Anyone know how to use the said tool?

    Hello Si

    On the w2k server installation CD in the directory support\tools are the support tools installation files. Part of those tools is LDP.exe, you can launch it from the cab or install the tools and access it via "Start > programs > windows 2000 support tools > tools > Active Directory administration tool", it allows you to directly search and modify the LDAP directory.

    Have you removed a computer which is trying to be updated by the frs? From the quote you gave it sounds like they are instructing you to remove references to that computer from AD

    LDAP stands for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, Active Directory is an LDAP directory you'll find a far better definition here than I could give.

    The full text from the error is:

    From what i can gather its from an old dfs root that was removed from the domain. As you can see the server "net-server1" root "data" is the problem. Never used the ldp tool any pointers on removing the refrenced object.

    I got this far with the help from the eventid website.

    Thanks in advance

    Si, take a look here on the minasi forum, there are a couple of options you could try before directly deleting stuff from AD which scares the bejasus out of me.

    I've done that already and this did clear some of the other FRS errors. :eek:


    I've done this but not sure it was in the location mentioned. Will check tomorrow :idea:

    No, it's a W2k server error from a DFS (Distributed File System) root that has been removed unsuccessfully. :D

    si sorry if went over ground you've already covered and you may have already figured this out for yourself but here goes.

    Launch LDP
    open the connection menu
    select connect
    enter the name of your domain controller and make sure it is using port 389, click ok
    open the connection menu
    select bind
    enter details of a domain admin account for the domain you have connected to
    open the view menu
    select tree
    in the text output will be a load of info on the domain you have connected to
    in the pane on the left is an expandable item along the lines of dc=yourdomain,dc=co,dc=uk
    expand that option
    somewhere around 7th line down is an entry along the lines of cn=system,dc=yourdomain,dc=co,dc=uk doubleclick on that
    in there is an entry cn=dfs-configuration,cn=system,dc=yourdomain,dc=co,dc=uk

    I'm not sure whether that is exactly where the replica object is but it's a good place to start, alternatively there is probably an entry something like

    cn=server1root|data\
    cnf:d5bcc4ea-148f-4039-a89b-2650f6bc024e,cn=server1root,cn=d04f6aa9-7136-46b4-95e7-6dd5055e2549,cn=dfs volumes,cn=ntfrs subscriptions,cn=net-server1,ou=domain controllers,dc=itsuite

    somewhere in the hierarchy. Once you find what you are seeking right click it, select delete and zap the sucker :D
    If you have problems doing that I read somewhere you can only delete leaf objects, not containers with objects in so you may have to start at the very end of a branch and work backwards. Hope this is a bit more useful.

    what happens if you right click the root domain object and do a search for frsMemberReference?

    Found it. It was under the Domain Controllers CN> NTFRS subsciptions>DFS Volumes.

    Deleted entries on both controllers stopped the Distributed File System service and started it agian. No errors. Thanks Phil for the help. 50 Points awarded for that.
