How can I Stage DFS (copy files and then move server to new physical/logical site)?
I am getting ready to implement Distributed File System on 2- 2003 Servers...only 1 of them is R2 so I will not be using the R2 version of this. My question is this...How can I 'stage' DFS so that the files are copied to the second server before the server is re-addressed and moved to a new subnet/site? I am trying to avoid replicating the initial data over the WAN connection at first...It's been a while but it seems that I tried to simply move the server to a new Active Directory site previously but that 'broke' the DFS. Can someone tell me the best way to do this?
