This should be very basic but i'm running into an issue...
I have 2 Server 2003 R2 servers (lets call them Server 1 and Server 2) on the same LAN with gigabit connections between them. I want to replicate 1 folder on Server 1 that contains multiple subfolders with multiple subfolder (etc..) with multiple files to Server 2. In total, the folder in question consist of:
Server 2 started with no data in its folder share. I went into DFS, created a domain root and added the folder (25 GB of data) on Server 1 as a root target and then added the empty folder on Server 2 as a root target. I went into configure replication and chose the share on Server 1 to be the initial master and set it to be Hub and spoke topology with Server 1 as the Hub. I made the replication schedule to be available at all times.
I actually set all this up this past Sunday and not until Tuesday morning did I see contents in the Server 2 folder (not nearly all the items that should be replicated). Yesterday I realized I needed to take action b/c something wasn't right. I went into the Publish tab of the Properties of the root and it was not being published in AD, so i published it and made myself the owner. I do have domain admin rights in this domain.
Today the share on Server 2 still has only
6.5 GB of data
which is only about 25% of the data.
My questions to you are:
Should it really be taking this long to do the initial replication?
Is there anything I did wrong or missed in the setup?
I figured it out... I didn't have the actual DFS replication service installed. I was using the DFS that comes out of the box for Server 2003 R2. After I installed all the additional DFS tools and services
