Thanks!
      
  • Initial Sync backlog issues?
    1 Posts | Last post September 30, 2015
    • It seems that files in the initial sync get skipped because of a bad method call?
      
      Method invocation failed because [System.Object[]] doesn't contain a method named 'GetVersionVector'.
      At C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Get-DFSRBacklog.ps1:187 char:82
      +                                         $Vv = $InboundPartnerWMI.GetVersionVector <<<< ().VersionVector
          + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (GetVersionVector:String) [], RuntimeException
          + FullyQualifiedErrorId : MethodNotFound
      
      
      Backlog count shows blank, backlog status goes to disabled. Any ideas? works fine on anything that is done the initial sync already.
      
  • Filenames for backlogged files

    • Can the script be updated to output/display the filename(s) of the backlogged files?
    • Potentially, but I am no longer putting effort into this script since Microsoft released updated DFS/DFSR cmdlets.  I would suggest updating to PowerShell 4.0 and running from Win 8.1 or 2012 R2 to against an existing DFSR location (if the servers cannot be directly upgraded)

      Otherwise feel free to update the script as needed if you are not able to use the official cmdlets.

  • Email Wrapper
    1 Posts | Last post March 31, 2014
    • Hi there,
      
      Great script and does a great job.  My question is for the email wrapper found on the discussion section on the other site.  I've applied the script and works perfect.  The only thing is if I set if ($result.BacklogStatus -ne "Error" ), it will still send an email even though there are no errors in the BackLog.  Thanks
  • The script is not working in multiple domains

    • The computernames have to be FQDN so you have to replace
      $Connection.Partnername
      with
      $Connection.PartnerDNS
      
      Then it will work in forests.
      
  • Can this script be used on the Windows Server 2012 (non-R2) platform ?
    1 Posts | Last post January 13, 2014
    • Would you give it a try out on the Windows Server 2012 even if it has not been verified on this (Non-R2)?
      
      Thank you in advance for your support.
