Note The "Hotfix download available" form displays the languages for which the hotfix is available. If you do not see your language, it is because a hotfix is not available for that language. The English version of this fix has the file attributes (or later) that are listed in the following table. The dates and times for these files are listed in coordinated universal time (UTC). When you view the file information, it is converted to local time. To find the difference between UTC and local time, use the Time Zone tab in the Date and Time tool in Control Panel.

   15-Nov-2002  06:03  5.0.2195.6131  733,968  Ntfrs.exe

After you install this hotfix, you must still perform a non-authoritative restoration for the replica set that experienced the problem. For additional information about how to perform a non-authoritative restoration, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
292438 Troubleshooting Journal_Wrap Errors on Sysvol and DFS Replica Sets
You must perform the non-authoritative restoration because the Inlog table for the replica set might still contain incorrect records. These incorrect records cause the Ntfrs service to continue to assert during the startup process. The non-authoritative restoration process rebuilds the Inlog table.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4.
