DFS and redundency
Posted on 2011-05-06
I need to configure two 2008 R2 file servers with complete redundancy. That means
1. Both servers (server1 and server2) have a separate copy of all the files.
2. If either one of the two servers fail, users will have uninterrupted service and ever know about the failure
3. Users can access files on both servers using the same share name \\fileshareserver
Can DFS be used for this? I had read something about if one of the servers was hosting the root or something similar that that server went down no files were available even if the other server was up.
