We currently have an SBS server 2008 box that is host to a DFS domain based namespace root.  We are migrating this to Windows 2008 Enterprise server.

The DFS system is replicated to a number of sites over a pathetically slow WAN link.  There is approximately 1GB of data in the DFS system.  Full replication can take up to a week!

I would like to know how I can migrate the root from the SBS box to the new box WITHOUT replicating all the data again?
