dfs windows 2003 weird replication
Posted on 2013-05-29
Hi, I have set up a DFS on my domain. I have 2 servers: one is max the other one is fs1
I have setup replication (or at least I think) just so that the dfs structure is replicated to another server.
My main file server is fs1 do that is where I setup dfs, and my exchange server is max so that is the one that gets the dfs structure replicated to.
So under max I see a folder called "masterfolder" (my dfs root name).
What is weird is that I have now a folder on MAX called ___SyncFromFS1 which contains almost all files from FS1???
First where is that coming from? Did I screw up the replication settings
Second: if I did screwed up the replication settings then how come not all files got replicated to MAX??
It is a good thing that not all files from my file server got replicated because it would have crashed my little space Exchange server MAX by filling it up.
