How can I safely remove a redundant FRS replica set ?
Posted on 2008-11-14
I have a server that I am trying to replicate using DFS to another server (also running DFS). The problem is that it won't replicate because it says that this overlaps with an exisiting FRS replica set.
I did some digging and found what I believe is the offending replica set in the AD, here are the details:
\\our domain name\system\File Replication Service\DFS Volumes\Users\FRS Repica Set
What I want 2 know is can I safely remove this replica from within this section of the AD and will that "free up" FRS and release the replica set for DFS replication ?
This is urgent so if you can comment ASAP it would really be appreciated - this is a production server so I am a bit nervous about making this modification to the Active Directory without being 100% !
