DFS Replication Verification
Posted on 2013-01-03
I have an old Windows Server 2003 R2 file server that I want to replace with a Windows Server 2008 server R2.
I have setup a DFS replication from one share on the 2003 server to replicate to the 2008 server.
The directory on the 2003 server contains 130,553 files and 17,436 folders, but on the 2008 server I only get 117,415 files and 17,330 folders.
We are intiating replication both via schedule and manually. We are only comparing data folders not system/os folders. Either way, our file sizes aren't the same, or at least close enough to feel like this is working right. Can anyone tell me why the number of target and source files do not match. When running DFS, is there a there a tool that can be used to tell if DFS is running and how much has been completed?
