DFS for an existing file share

Julian123 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-28
I currently have a set of users using a file share at \\ServerA (running Windows 2008 r2). I want to install DFS and configure replication so that these data are also available on \\ServerB  (running Windows 2008 r2) in case \\ServerA becomes unavailable.. It's a key requirement that users do not lose access to the servers at any time during this process. Is that possible?

If so, please let me know how to do it.
