Need two servers in different physical locations to mirror data

Hello,
I have Server A in Room A.   Server B is in Room B.  Server A has ip connectivity to Server B across a wireless bridge connection.  Both are members of a 2003 Active Directory Domain.  I want the data that is on Server A to be the same as data on Server B.
If a change is made to a file on Server A, I want that information replicated to Server B, and vice versa.

We only want to back up data from Server B, and ensure that the data on Server A = data on Server B (for a specific folder and sub-folders and files, of course).

If you are using Server 2003 R2, you can achieve what you want by using DFS replication. You can also do DFS with vanilla 2003 but in my experience R2 DFS is more bandwidth efficient.

See the guides for more information on DFS.
