So I recently began managing an existing DFS replication server. The current configuration is:
Server 1- DC, DFSR, File Server
Server 2- DC, DSFR, File Server
I added a new sever, server 3, and it is just DFSR and a file server. I was able to add the replication folders and replication works fine. I did notice that the replication folders are not published. I am a novice to DFS, but from what I understand, you do not need to publish a folder to the namespace if it is on a DC. However, I am getting rid of DFSR on the DC's and need to publish the folders. When I try to do this, I get an error stating that the folder already exists and I can not get it to publish to the namespace.
Is there a way to publish an existing folder to the namespace?
