Message:Service failed to process the list of restored volumes in the registry
   
Explanation

The DFS Replication service failed to process the list of restored volumes. This failure can occur if the service encountered errors while accessing the list.

Cause

The DFS Replication service failed to process the list of restored volumes following a backup or restore operation. During these operations, the DFS Replication service is halted and a registry key is written that contains information about the state of volumes to be restored. After the backup or restore operation is complete, the DFS Replication service processes the list of volumes and then deletes the registry key.

If the DFS Replication service cannot read the registry key for any reason, you may see this error.

   
User Action

The service will automatically try to process the list again in a few minutes. A separate event will be logged if the service fails to restore the volume list.

You should check the status of your backup application to see if it is still in progress and might have control of the registry key. If you still see this error after the backup or restore operation is complete, you may need to engage Customer Support Services (CSS) via http://support.microsoft.com.

Prior to engaging CSS, please collect the following information and have it ready for the support professional:

  1. Collect all DFS Replication debug logs from %Windows%\debug\DFSR*.
  2. Save the DFS Replication event viewer log.
  3. Use dfsrdiag.exe to dump DFS Replication configuration to a text file by using the following commands:

a.      dfsrdiag dumpadcfg >DFSR_AD_CFG.txt

b.      dfsrdiag DumpMachineCfg >DFSR_MACHINE_CFG.txt

  1. Note the service pack level of the server in question and whether any DFS Replication hotfixes are installed on it.
  2. Copy the contents of the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DFSR\Restore.
