Health_chk.cmd: FRS Health Check

This command-line tool retrieves FRS-related state information from the specified domain controller or server. It collects and provides administrators with in-depth data that can be used to monitor or troubleshoot an FRS system.

Health_Chk calls a series of tools for the output they produce. It can be run against a remote server, however, running the script directly on the server to be analyzed enables the tools to gather additional useful data not available when the script is run remotely.

The File Replication Service (FRS) is a multi-master file replication service for NTFS that allows member machines to be interconnected in an arbitrary topology and uses last-writer-wins conflict resolution. It uses authenticated Remote Procedure Call (RPC) with encryption as the communication protocol between members, and can also support disconnected operation. FRS supports multiple replication sets per computer, each with potentially distinct topology.
