Windows 2008 R2 WDS mutliple

HI All

So we are setting up to start 3 WDS server 1 at hq, 1 at remote offce and 1 at remote office2
is there any way that when i make changes to HQ it replicated to both remote offices? so lets say i added a new WIM to the group it would replicate to the WDS servers? Currently i have to Mount the WIM to HQ then log in to remote office and do the same.

Did you try to use a DFS for distribution?

Do you mean changes made to your custom install image at HQ, and you want it to replicate over to your branches ?

Yes, you can create a DFS (Distributed file system and place your Images on it)

Replicating Images                
DFS Replication is a replication engine that you can use to  replicate images between Windows Deployment Services servers. DFS  Replication can decrease the total cost of ownership by making it  possible for you to manage images from a single server in the  environment. Changes can then be propagated to other servers without  requiring interaction. A best practice is to create a single, master  Windows Deployment Services server and make all modifications to images  on this server by using the Windows Deployment Services management tools  and the tools included in the Windows AIK. Then wait for your changes  to finish replication. You can view replication status by creating a  replication report (see Create  a Diagnostic Report for DFS Replication).  To prevent replication  conflicts, avoid modifying or servicing the same image from multiple  servers at the same time, or make the replicated folder read-only on all  replication group members except Windows Deployment Services.
