Hello,

I am trying to set up 2 folders on 2 servers so that changes made to one are replicated to the other and vice versa.  The servers are both Microsoft 2003 R2 boxes and connected to the same LAN.  Is there a relatively simple way to do this?

Thanks

Microsoft DFS (distributed file system) will do this. Do they need to stay absolutely in synch, or is a time lag acceptable?

A time lag of even an hour or two would be ok.

I found the answer myself but TBone's suggestion would work too.
