Moving DFS

Posted on 2012-08-27

New to DFS and have done some reading on the topic. We currently have DFS and replication setup on two servers. The end goal is to remove all shares on Server 1 and place them on the new server, leave server 2 alone for the time being, and make server three the root I guess? All three servers are running Server 2008 R2.
Trying to find the easiest way to accomplish this task since I dont have a test environment to play with. Sorry for such a general ask for help but I not really sure where to start.
I guess a better question would be can I just use replication to copy all to the new server?
