Good Evening

Thank you for your time and attention to this request.

We have two sites connected via VPN. We are in process of installing two domain controllers (Server 2012) at each site to make them less dependent on each other.  I would like to setup Windows DFS (File Replication) between the two site. There is a shared folder all users use. I would like to have those two folders sync w/ each other on an interval.

Can you point me to a how to or explain how to do this.
I already added Print and File roles to each of the server. I figured it would be an additional feature i would install but i don't see anything.


Thank you in advance.
