Replicate Folder Targets Using DFS Replication

Published: August 17, 2007

Updated: May 20, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can use DFS Replication to keep the contents of folder targets in sync so that users see the same files regardless of which folder target the client computer is referred to.

To replicate folder targets using DFS Replication

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

  2. In the console tree, under the Namespaces node, right-click a folder that has two or more folder targets, and then click Replicate Folder.

  3. Follow the instructions in the Replicate Folder Wizard.

noteNote
Configuration changes are not applied immediately to all members. 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.
