We use DFS to replicate our Staff data. I've read that PST DFS can cause problems over a a LAN etc.
So how do I get the users PST file over onto our DFS Box?
At the moment I use Symantec Backup Exec for our backups.
What I've managed to do so far is Perform a nightly backup as per usual, and then get a restore of the PSTs from that Back up to another drive. So theres two things I'm asking
1) Could i perform the restore straight to the DFS box? If so what setting do i use etc as I've
had difficulties performing this i.e do i preserver tree etc when redirecting and where do i place the redirect? at the root of the DFS box? I dont want to lose the dat already replicated over I just want to place the PSTs into the correct user areas
2) If once the restore is done to a different drive could i run a robocopy to then copy the files over to the DFS box? Again what would be the commands for that
As it stands at the moment if you imagine our system looks something like
and this is of course the same on the replicated box.
N.B the other issue is that not all PSTs are store in My Documents for hte user, some of them store them in sub directories.
