Site 1 is called Philadelphia
Site 2 is called Bethlehem

I have created a replication folder between both sites of their shared data.
I also created a DFS namespace with that share.
How do I ensure that when someone in each site access' the DFS share that it only pulls the data from that local share, not the share from the other site?

Specifically,

"One option is to configure Dfs so that it redirects clients only to link targets in the users' local sites. You enable this optioncalled Restricted Same-site Target Selection modeby executing the Dfsutil command and specifying the /insite parameter, like this:

dfsutil /root:\\<server>
    \<dfs root> /insite /enable
