"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

These links are nice, but like most of what I find on a search, it doesn't give me a "How-To" setup File Replication.;

For example, even on the WIndow 2003 server help, it says under Initiate File Replication, to
Click on the domain root or link for which you would like to initiate replication
One the Action menu, slect Configure Replication

Well.. "Configure Replication" never shows up. I have the File Replication service running, but can't figure out what "step" I have missed, being that there are no step-by-step instructions.

Thats what Im looking for.
