Okay, I want to set up a domain dfs root with replication for three shared folders on my network. I have two NAS servers where I plan to host the three shared folders. I plan on restoring from tape the three folders to each of the NAS servers, so they each have identical copies of the three shared folders. Now, do I have to set up the domain DFS root on a DC? The two NAS servers are domain member servers only. Do the folder names have to be different, or because they're on different servers, can the folder names remain identical on each server, which means the dfs links will have the same name, but different paths? These three folders, let's call them A, B, and C, have a cumulative sum of 236 GB. Is this going to be a problem for replication and synchronization?
