DFS and SYSVOL

Experts out there, We are planing to migrate Windows 2008 AD environment to Windows 2012 R2 not windows 2016 yet. I do not know much about DFS. We are using DFS extensively.
1. Dod we have to do anything about DFS?
2. I have been reading SYSVOL and DFS, not clear to me. Do we have to configure SYSVOL to DFS or AD will take care that?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you're domain shares are still using FRS then you should migrate them to DFS. AD does not do this automatically.  This is not related to your other shares already using DFS and has no direct impact.

What about sysvol, do I have to set DFS for that?
