DFS and setting up replicating shares
Posted on 2014-12-20
Currently have 1x Windows 2012 R2 server (DC) with all the shares. \\DC-01\share1, \\DC-01\share2, etc. I am adding another Windows 2012 R2 server (DC also) to the mix and I want to start using DFS Namespace and Replication so all the shares are \\domain.local\share1, \\domain.local\share2. Trying to figure out the best way to do this.
I set up a new namespace DC-01
Named it 'install' and set the permissions, left the shared folder as C:\DFSRoots\install
Set it as Domain-based namespace
Assuming I need to add DC-02 to the list of namespace servers and set the folders in there.
To get that to replicate, I need to set up a replication group correct? Will all the permissions carry across?
