DFS replication on two file servers at two sites
Posted on 2009-05-11
I have two sites connected by a 10 MB internal circuit...We'll call Site A the primary site where everything is and Site B the remote site. I currently have a file server at Site A and users at Site B connect to the file server over the internal circuit. Can I setup DFS replication so that the DFS namespace on a server at Site A is replicated to Site B and users at Site B use that namespace to access the files and then replicate the changes back and forth?
Meaning, when users at Site B (remote site) go to \\domain\share, they are accessing the namespace at their site rather than accessing over the 10 MB circuit to get to the file server on Site A. Both sites would be accessing their namespaces locally and then any changes would be replicated back and forth...Can that be done?
Thanks in advance!
