SOLUTION:

This event and error code indicate a communication error between replication nodes; trouble-
shooting steps to address the disruption and stabilize communications should be employed.

Steps:

1. TCP Offload: Check TCP Offload and ensure it is disabled.

i. Windows Server 2008 R2 and earlier- At the desktop Start menu, select Run, and
type 'regedit.exe'.

ii. Windows Server 2012 and later- Press the Windows key + Q, and type 'regedit'
in the 'search' box. Click on the registry editor (regedit) icon when displayed.

b. Edit the following keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters

Value = DisableTaskOffload

Type = DWORD

Data = 1

Type = DWORD

Data = 0



Value =EnableTCPA

Type = DWORD

Data = 0



Value =EnableRSS

Type = DWORD

Data = 0


2. Firewall: If Windows Firewall is enabled, consider disabling it as a method of troubleshooting to
see if the errors disappear.

3. Backups: Backups can get in the way of replication and cause these events to surface.
Check the backup job schedule to see if jobs were running while these errors
occurred. If backup job times coincide with the timestamps on the error messages, it is safe to
ignore the errors. Replication can also be disabled during that time period following these steps:

a. Open the DFS Console.

b. Expand the Replication section.

c. Right-click on the Replication group experiencing the trouble and choose Properties.

d. Click the Edit Schedule button.
