I have trolled the Internet and found many a varying procedure on how to perform the following however as they are so diverse i though i would ask the question here pertaining to my scenario in the hope of getting the correct procedure to follow.
We have a 2003 SP2 server with a directory called shared_data
. Under that folder we have 6 shared folders. Each of these folders is shared and setup as a folder target in DFSR.
So in summary its a single namespace \\OurDomain.Local\DFS
with 6 Folder Targets with the path \\Server1\Share1 \\Server1\Share2
etc. One of these folders is replicated to another server
What i want to do is retire this server and move the folder targets including data to another server. The new server will be 2008 SP2 taking into consideration the following
One of the folders is replicated to another server this replication will need to change source but destination will remain the same
One of the folders contains user shares that are mapped as (\\Domain.Local\DFS\Users\Username)
The other shares have permissions that restrict access to certain user groups.
The Domain is 2008
A step by step procedure would assist a great deal
Thanks in advance
