DFS setup

Hello,

I am currently working with the DFS service in WIndows Server 2003. I intend to use this service as a mirrored backup of files and folders on server A. I wish to mirror a few shared folders off of an array attached to server A, to the same configuration of files on identical server B. I have set the primary shared folders from server A to replicate to server B. I have not been able to see any change on server B, where there is supposed to be new data. Is there a delay that Im not aware of, or is there something that I am missing?

I know this may not be the most detailed question, so if there is any info that I can provide to you, please let me know!

Thanks in advance everyone!

How did you configure your replication? Which server is the Sending server and which is the receiving server?  Also, did you include both targets in your DFS namespace?

Server A is the primary, sending to Server B. Also, I am a bit new to this DFS configuration. Is there something that I need to do with the namespaces that I may have missed?

Since it sounds like you may be new to DFS and DFSR, Mitch Tulloch has some great articles regarding configuring & implementing DFS namespaces and replication.  http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/configuring-using-dfs-replication.html

These helped me out on my first implementation.

I actually just read this article. It seems that there is something wrong somewhere else. I will reboot the servers when the office is empty and report back.
