Issue: All Lync Server failed to replicate.
Error message: Failed to replicate to some replica machines in the topology. Microsoft Lync server 2013, Master Replicator Agent will continuously attempt to replicate with these machines.
All Lync Front End, Edge, Mediation, Persistent chat server failed to replicate. Did force replication however it failed.
Recently I have seen one of our customers all Lync Server failed to replicate. Even force the replication using PowerShell command however replication failed again.Force replication: Invoke-CsManagementStoreReplication
All Servers failed to replicate hence started looking from Lync Server site where CMS hosted.
Logged on Front End server and checked event log found event ID: 2018
“Failed to replicate to some replica machines in the topology. Microsoft Lync server 2013, Master Replicator Agent will continuously attempt to replicate with these machines.”
Master replicator agent services was running on all Front End server pool which holds CMS.
Then check Lync file share, tried to browse Lync file share path however unable to access Lync file share. Got to know that Lync file share was not available to replicate data.
DFS file share server was down as soon as made server up Lync file share path was browsing correctly.
Did force replication again after Lync file share available.
Waited to 5 minutes to force the replication this time all Lync Server shows up-to-date as “True”.
You can check replication status using below PowerShell command:
