I am replacing a server storage unit containing 4.5TB with new hardware. I would like to use the old storage unit in the same site as the new hardware in a DFS replication group acting as a DFS namespace/folder target backup.
What i would like to accomplish is to have all users work primary towards the new server hardware and in case of hardware downtime be able to switch manually or automatically to the secondary old server hardware.
Is it possible to accomplish in some supported way and keep the server in the same site?
If I move the old server to a different office within the samt subnet and create a site for that office would I then have a possible solution? Communication is 100/100mb/s.
