DFS Replication help

Last Modified: 2013-01-03
I am attempting to setup replication between two 2K8 R2 machines. I have created a test folder on machine one, I have also installed File services on both machines.
I set machine one as the primary to replicate to machine two, I point to the folders and where I want them to go and enable replication. What is happening, or at least I think is happening, is the folder is copied from machine one to machine two. But then the folder is gone from machine one. I am guessing this is a configuration issue, but since I am a newbie to this setup I dont know what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

thanks guys, found my issue to be that I had the folders named the same in both places. Which caused all sorts of errors
