Urgent! need help with DFS setup across 4 domains over wan connections
Posted on 2011-02-12
We are currently in the middle of a domain migration, we looking at implementing DFS on our windows 2003 enteprise sp2 clustered file server that resides in domain b
we have domain c, domain d and domain e.
All of these domains are migrating to domain f.
so ideally we would all users in domain f to see the two shared folders in domain b but since we have office globally, we are trying implement dfs replicas so that can improve performance.
i create a dfs domain root share on domain b but only could create it on the active node which is 2 on the cluster and not on the cluster node itself.
which is in active/passive configuration
1 I need to know if its possible to create on the cluster as i know dfs is not cluster aware
i need to setup dfs target replicas on file servers all across the globe in domain f to syncronize the folder that are in domain b cluster file server.
I would like detailed instructions on how to achieve this.
I would like to know if its possible to setup a dfs namespace on the domain b cluster file server that is running windows 2003 ent sp2 and not r2.
and domain f servers are running 2008 sp2.
Thank you, experts
