DFSR replication report

Under Windows 2003/2008, to generate a diagnostic report for DFSR Replication, follow this easy steps:

Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DFS Management:


In the console tree, under the Replication node, right-click the replication group that you want to create a diagnostic report for, and then click Create Diagnostic Report:


Follow the instructions in the Diagnostic Report Wizard, as in the pics below:




Wait for the report to be generated:

... and here's the nice graphical output to show to your boss:


A few notes from Technet:
  • To create a diagnostic report, you must be a member of the local Administrators group on each server that you prepare a report for.
  • The amount of time necessary to generate a diagnostic report will vary based on a number of factors, including: DFS Replication health; the number of replicated folders; available server resources (for example, CPU, memory, and so forth); WAN availability (connectivity, bandwidth, and latency); and the chosen reporting options (backlog and file system enumeration). Because of the potential delay in creating diagnostic reports, we recommend creating diagnostic reports for no more than 50 servers at a time.
