Windows 2003 DFS

Hello,

Within my current environment i have 2 physical file servers both are Windows 2003 SE R2

One file server total used space: 244 GB

Second file server 162 GB and growing

i have 4 Xenserver that combine total free space 1 TB can scale it up to 1.5 TB if needed

i am planning to roll out roaming profiles for 170 desktops add 50 additional home folders average size 1 GB per home folder once everything is off the profile i believe each profile shouldn't be more than 100 MB

My plan is to setup Windows 2003 SE server on each Xenserver enable AD DFS and configure DFS replication all servers are at one site.

Relating to AD DFS replication how effective will this be in establishing a high availability file server environment?

Microsoft DFS can provide a simple and fast automatic failover. The failover of any user or application to any replica that you specify will occur if the primary source becomes unavailable
