DFS Setup Windows 2003 Server
Posted on 2006-06-11
I have 2 locations same domain both on AD connected thru a dedicated tunnel.
I have a folder on my server1 that I need on server2 and when users edit or add files it needs to update on server1. And if someone edits or adds files on sever1 it needs to update on server2.
I know DFS does this, but how do you set it up? what steps do I take as for host and target.
Also do I need to copy the files from server1 to server2? or does DFS add the files to server2 automatic?
What Topology do I use?
My folder setup needed:
Server1 F:\Private < Right now files are here
Server2 L:\Private < New server empty folder
How do I keep regular users from seeing the directory? I noticed when I tired this is Shared the folder so everyone can see it.
My drive is setup like this:
F: Drive Have my folders in it that regular users don't see I created a folder called Apps and shared it then mapped the workstations to that folder as "S" Drive they can only see the programs in their mapped drive. The private folder is in the root of F: Drive. If they browse the network and access server the shares show up do I just take their rights away for the DFS folders so they can't access them?
