Hi All,

In the process of adding a remote office to one of my sites.

Existing site runs 2 Server 2008 boxes that replicate data via DFS replication.
Existing users at that site work off Server2, with Server1 providing a mirror of the data if required.

Remote office is connected by a Wireless link & will also hava a Server 2008 box that is also part of the replication group.

Users at the remote site will operate on data off Server 3 in order to have local file access speed as opposed to dragging data over the link.

How is it possible to setup NameSpaces so that users at the main site are directed to Server2, while users at the remote site are directed to Server3.

All are runnning as AD Domain controllers.

No NameSpaces are configured at this stage.
