JSI Tip 4307. Starting replication from a Windows 2000 Advanced Server generates Event 13507?

When you attempt to start replication from a Windows 2000 Advanced Server that is a domain controller, the File Replication log contains:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: NtFrs
Event Category: None
Event ID: 13507
Date: 5/24/2000
Time: 3:44:54 PM
User: N/A
Computer: <ComputerName>
Description: The File Replication Service cannot start replication set DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE) on computer
             <ComputerName> for directory <Drive:>\winnt\sysvol\domain because the type of volume \\.\<Drive:>\ is not NTFS 5.0 or later.
             The volume's type can be found by typing "chkdsk \\.\<Drive:>\". The volume can be upgraded to NTFS 5.0 or later
             by typing "chkntfs /E \\.\<Drive:>\".
If the domain controller is NOT updated with the drive letter for the Domain System Volume Share, this error will occur.

To fix the problem:

1. Use ADSIEdit.msc, from the Support Tools to select the Domain Controllers organizational unit.

2. Select the name of the domain controller (CN=xxxx).

3. Select NTFRS Subscriptions and view the properties of the Domain System Volume Share.

4. Change the property view to Mandatory

5. Change the FRSRootPath value to indicate drive <NewDrive>.

6. Change the FRSStagingPath value to indicate drive <NewDrive>.

7. Stop and Start the NTFRS service.
