(I will preface this with the fact that FS02 crashed a while back and after getting it back up, I've decided to replace it instead of troubleshooting the DFS issues since it's an old server anyway)
2 production servers (FS01 and FS02). A not all of the data on FS01's is up to date, because certain folders on FS02 stopped replicating a couple weeks ago. I built a new server FS03 and I have pre-seeded the data and I am ready to begin initial sync replication.
It is asking which members I want it to replicate with. This is my problem.
Do I have it replicate with FS02 and it possibly not get all the data because certain folders do not replicate? Do I have it replicate with both FS01 and FS02? If I do this, will it win in conflicts with FS01, because it's data is a couple weeks old.
I'm pretty sure I'm overthinking this, but I could really use some one else's input.
