DFS Namespace using FRS replication
Posted on 2009-05-13
I am inherited a DFS mess. The DFS namespace is running on Windows 2003 Server is working correctly. I am doing cleanup work. WHen I look at one of the namespace folders it says the 3 member server targets are being replicated using FRS
I am just learning DFS , so please bear with me. I have read FRS causes data loss and should be converted to using DFS replication
My first concern is I have a folder called GPO that is being replicated to 17 member servers using FRS. I think this is causing excessive network traffic, and I also see FRS errors on each of these member servers. How do I safely disable this FRS replication on namespace and are there any steps to take at the other end on the member servers when I disable it's FRS replication? For now I have disabled the targets on this folder.
