Can DFS replicate files residing on a non-domain controller

Posted on 2009-04-30

I have 2 domain controllers: DC1 and DC2. Each DC is in a separate site. I also have 1 file server, FS1 which is in the same site as DC1. I have DFS replication set up to replicate files between DC1 and DC2. There are some files on FS1 that I need to replicate to the remote site. Am I able to do this without making FS1 a domain controller and installing DFS services? i.e. Can you use DFS to replicate files hosted on a non DFS machine?

    Yes, as long as the machine is a domain member you can replicate it using DFS.
