Morphed directories exist in site

Indicates if morphed directories are found in a replica tree.

Supported on: Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, and Windows Server 2019
Required permissions: Domain user privilege is required.

All files and folders that File Replication Service (FRS) manages are uniquely identified internally by a special file identifier. FRS uses these identifiers as the canonical identifiers of files and folders that are being replicated. If FRS receives a change order to create a folder that already exists, which by definition has a different file identifier than the duplicate folder, FRS protects the conflicting change by leaving the original directory structure intact, and renaming the conflicting directory to a unique name so that underlying files and folders can be preserved. The conflicting folder is given a new name in the following format: <FolderName>_NTFRS_<GUID>, where <FolderName> is the original name of the folder and <GUID> is a unique character string, such as 001a84b2.

Common causes of this condition are:

Site details

Information only.

Table 6. Site details

Group caching enabled

Indicates if group caching is enabled or disabled.

Intersite topology generation

Indicates if intersite topology generation is enabled or disabled.

Intrasite topology generation

Indicates if intrasite topology generation is enabled or disabled.

Intersite topology generator

Name of the intersite topology generator.

Domain controllers

Number of domain controllers

Site links

Number of site links.

Too few global catalog servers in site

Indicates if the number of global catalog servers in a given site is less than or equal to the configured threshold.

Supported on: Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, and Windows Server 2019
Required permissions: Domain user privilege is required.

Each site in an Active Directory® enterprise should have at least one domain controller configured as a global catalog. The workstation login process always attempts to contact a global catalog server, and if none are running at the site where the workstation resides, the workstation will connect to a global catalog server outside of the site, which can cause excess WAN traffic and unnecessary delays in the login process.
