In this scenario we will see a Microsoft Word 2003 file modified using MS Word 2003 and how that change is replicated between servers. This is useful to understand in order to troubleshoot issues where problems within the USN journal, the DFSR JET database, the staging folder structure, and the network (including RPC) are preventing replication from working correctly. This also covers a practice often used by MS Office (and to a lesser extent other) applications that use transitional and temporary files in the main file’s working directory. Note that other Office file types like Excel, PowerPoint, etc. may behave differently.
