SYMPTOMS

When you use System Monitor to collect performance data on a domain controller that is running the File Replication service (FRS), you may find that the FileReplicaConn object values and the Authentications in Error counter values are very high (they may range from several hundred to several thousand). The values may increase every five to ten minutes. FRS replication is performed correctly and no error event messages occur.
