DFS-R Target not published

Hello everybody,

I have a DFS-N infrastructure with some shared folder replicted on HUB server using DFS-R.
But when i look on mmc shared folders from the HUB server, there is no one connected on the replica.
Then when i go on DFS Managment mmc console on any DFS server i can see that the publication status of my replicated folder  is not published as you can see it in the following screenshot .

Can ou tell me how can i do to make sure users on the same  site that the Hub server can connect it?

Thank you for your help

Replicating folders and publishing folders are two different things,
DFS replication just enable replication between source and target folder
If you want to publish replicated folders, 1st they needs to be shared out on servers and then explicitly needs to be published in DFS name space as folder targets to make them available over network for users

Also DFS is AD site aware application and if your AD site to subnet latching is correct, your users can access local DFS servers in same site, no special measures are required for that
