Roaming user profiles on 2nd DC as backup against failure - Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2011-03-08
Windows Server 2008 R2 domain with roaming user profiles. Group Policy specifies that roaming profiles get stored on Server1, a domain controller. I have a second domain controller that's also a Global Catalog to provide protection should Server1 fail. Server2 also has a copy of DNS.
Question: how can I provide a backup for the roaming user profiles on Server2? I'd like to keep it in sync with Server1 so that in the case of a failure, users will just get authenticated by Server2 and have a copy of their user profile there so they can just keep working away. Is there a way to configure the policy to keep a copy on both servers?
