Adding DFS to Existing Share
Posted on 2007-03-27
I have a current share on one of my servers, i.e \\server1\users$ which is a share for all our user folders. FOr a while this has formed part of a DFS root i.e \\domain\users\site which currently points at the server above but doesnt replicate with anything. What we want to do is add another link to the \\domain\users\site i.e \\server2\users$.
My problem is, i want to do this online, but when i add the second link and configure replication DFS alters the original share, making a NTFRS_preexisting folder and moving all the data within here, and then proceeds to copy it back to the existing share. Obviously this is causing issues with a live share.
Is there any way to do this WITHOUT the original share being altered during the initial replication.
