Replicate a DFS subfolder over one connection only

Hi

I currently have three Windows Server 2012 servers in a DFS namespace spread out over a WAN. Two of them are connected with 100Mb but the third is only 10Mb.

I have created a filter for one of the subfolders of the root folder because it contains huge files which I don't want replicating over the 10Mb link. I do however want them to replicate over the 100Mb. What is the best way to achieve this please?

Do I need to create a new namespace that only contains this particular folder? And make the 100Mb-linked servers the only members? I did explore this route but got to the stage where it mentions setting security on the folder and was concerned I may overwrite the existing ACLs.

Or can I somehow be more selective with the filters e.g. only apply the filter to a particular connection?

Looking forward to your suggestions!

Hi Dan,

Unfortunately that does not relate to my issue.

I need a method of replicating a subfolder to one particular DFS member only.

Then I would suggest creating multiple replication groups.

Group1
- membership contains only the servers connected with 100mb links
- replicated folders contains all folders to be sync'ed to 100mb connected sites (includes large file directory)

Group2
- membership contains all servers at all sites
- replicated folders contains only the folders to be sync'ed to all sites (excludes large file directory)
