Follow this procedure to create a replicated folder by using DFS Management.

TipTip
To create a replicated folder by using Windows PowerShell, use the New-DfsReplicatedFolder cmdlet. The DFSR Windows PowerShell module was introduced in Windows Server 2012 R2.

To create a replicated folder

  1. Click Start , point to Administrative Tools , and then click DFS Management .

  2. In the console tree, under the Replication node, right-click a replication group, and then click New Replicated Folders .

  3. Follow the instructions in the New Replicated Folders Wizard.

noteNote
Configuration changes are not applied immediately to all members except when using the Suspend-DfsReplicationGroup and Sync-DfsReplicationGroup cmdlets. The new configuration must be replicated to all domain controllers, and each member in the replication group must poll its closest domain controller to obtain the changes. The amount of time this takes depends on AD DS replication latency and the long polling interval (60 minutes) on each member. To poll immediately for configuration changes, open a command prompt window and then type the following command once for each member of the replication group: dfsrdiag.exe PollAD /Member:DOMAIN\Server1. To do so from a Windows PowerShell session, use the Update-DfsrConfigurationFromAD cmdlet, which was introduced on Windows Server 2012 R2.
