Hi Experts..

Is it OK to host Database files on SBS2003 DFS?

I am planning a DFS implementation for a client.

Currently they have a SBS2003 domain. I am planning to add an extra "MS 2003 Standard R2" File Server to host new DFS  root and replicate it to the SBS2003 DC.

The company uses several accounting databases such as MYOB and Locus (flat file databases openned by muliple clients via a mapped drive).

Is it safe to store these database files in the DFS folder structure?.

Will DFS be able to replicate these database files if open by multiple clients?

Many thanks
