Additional DC/Server hosting new DFS - Best way to move existing info to new share setup
Posted on 2010-11-29
We are implementing a new server into our setup. Previously, we only had one server hosting all shares and no DFS has been implemented. All users have their my documents redirected to a share on the server and all is working fine. The server is a 2003 R2 standard edition.
What im planning on doing is implementing a new server 2008 R2 Enterprise edition server to host a DFS as well as a DC/GC/DNS. The DFS will host the data from the redirected folders as well as other company data. I am wanting to move away from redirected folders and simply map a drive via GP to a DFS home folder share for each user which will house the data that was stored previously in their My Docs.
What im wanting to know is how would you move the data to new newly created DFS?
