Hello Experts,

Recently I have done a P2V of a file server. The File server had DFS namespace and replication group configured on it.

 Post P2V of the file server , the virtual machine don't have any DFS namespace or replication group under DFS Management console.

 I am wondering , what went wrong? I can only think , before P2V we had the DFS service stopped , Did that caused this behavior?

It's possible DFS replication has broke, because of the service stoppage.

You could always re-do P2V with the Sync Option.
