How to setup DFS to replicate shared data
Posted on 2007-11-20
We have 2 sites, Site A and Site B. AD is setup running the R2 schema extensions. The need has arisen to use DFS to replicate shared data located on Server1 in Site A -> Server2 on Site B, and to allow for any additions / changed to the folder on Server2 on Site B to be replicated back to Site A's Server 1.
In other words, they would like to use DFS to replicate documents between 2 sites for collaboration, and make the same documents available on both sites. Is this making sense?
Anyone got any guidance as to how to achieve this? Any step by step guides available? Is this a case of DFS Namespace or DFS Replication? I have done some research, and the more I read the more confused I get.
Also, is there any requirement to have a 2003 Enterprise R2 server in your domain to facilitate for DFS in some way?
