I have installed 2 replacement servers (windows 2003 enterprise)

PDC & BDC, all working fine - dns, wins, dhcp

Only problem now is that i have lost the dfsstore

When i goto "show root" and goto open say DFS Store its says:

"The Specified root does not exist"

I have the data on the new server

Is there a way to remove the root dfs and then re-set up?
