I have in my domain provided a share true the domain controller.
Now this share is a DFS that looks at two places:
- filer 1 - disk D
- filer 2 - disk D.

Between them is a replication. And set filer 2 as master.
Now somethimes it can happen that filer 2 goes down (maintenance, problems, ...) in that way filer 1 takes over.

The problem or question is that when happens all my workstations are writing data to the share (filer 1 in this case because 2 is down).

Now when filer 2 comes back up. What happens with the data on filer ? Will filer 2 overwritten this data?

Kind regards.
