DFS synch and redirected folders - what happens if...
Posted on 2011-03-10
So I have 2 servers in 2 offices. They both are part of a DFS namespace and have the 'same' folder on each of them.
I have however had some sync problems because of extremely large files and slow internet connection, so they are not fully up to sync with each other.
So if a user has been working in office "B" with her 'documents folder' redirected to a DFS share, and today she shows up in office 'A', what will happen?
Her computer is perfectly synced up in the 'B' office - will her logging on to the server here in the 'A' office (same domain different site) screw up her documents folder?
In a perfect world she would simply see what is on the server folder here and (hopefully) copy over the locally stored offline files to the 'A' server redirect folder, and eventually it would all synch together... but, it never works like you want it to...
what will happen when she logs on here in the 'A' office?
