Build a standby server using DFS
Posted on 2014-03-13
We have a WIN2K8 file server in our NY office. Our users access the NY server1 shares everyday to do their work.
We will have a NY datacenter move and server1 will be shut for a couple of days.
We have plan to create a standby server in our NJ data center. Let's say if we use the DFS technology, present server1 to the users using a DFS namespace and replicate the shares and data to the standby server. During the move, we can still present server1 to the users using the standby server from the DFS management, right?
