R2 DFS Replication - Initial Copy
Posted on 2006-05-26
In the new DFS Replication in Windows Server 2003 R2, is it possible to do an offline initial copy of all the data (200GB) to a remote server? In other words, I don't want to use the WAN for the initial copy so I would bring the data to the remote site using a USB hard drive and robocopy it to its folder target.
In the past with FRS, you had to choose an initial master and this master would copy the data to the remote server regardless if the data already existed.
Has anyone tried it? Any info or URL would be greatly appreciated.
