Failed in configuring the debug log files

Product: Windows Operating System
Event ID: 2104
Source: DFSR
Version: 5.2.3790.1830
Message: Failed in configuring the debug log files

The DFS Replication service was unable to recover from an internal database error on the volume. Replication has stopped for all replicated folders on this volume until the database is automatically rebuilt. If the database is rebuilt successfully, replication will resume after the rebuilding is complete.


This problem can occur when the DFS Replication service is unable to recover from an internal database error. Some common causes of this error include:

  • The disk on which the volume is stored is full.
  • The database has become corrupt.
  • Physical problems with the disk interfered with database access.
User Action

The system will attempt to rebuild the database automatically. However, you should ensure there is sufficient disk space on the volume for database maintenance and check the NTFS log for volume errors, which can help you troubleshoot possible hardware failures.

If the database cannot be rebuilt, a separate event is generated. If you see this error frequently, you should run Chkdsk on the volume that contains the database to verify that the problem is not disk-related.
