We have currently DFS running on three sites(NY, NJ and AK). All three sites servers are windows2008 physical servers.
We are going to replace these physical server to VM with windows2012 instead of doing P2V.
We have a domain name space\\mydomain.local\home
Underneath we have folder share nyhome, NJhome and AKhome from each site server(NJsrv1,NYsrv1,AKserv1), all these three servers are name space server as well as file servers.
I am thinking of installing windows2012 at each site and add these servers as name space server and create a share at each server and replicate the folders then remove the physical servers.
Is it correct approch ?
