Published: August 17, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

To enable file sharing on a replicated folder and optionally add the folder to a DFS namespace, use the following procedures:

To share a replicated folder without publishing the folder to a DFS namespace

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

  2. In the console tree, under the Replication node, click the replication group that contains the replicated folder you want to share.

  3. In the details pane, on the Replicated Folders tab, right-click the replicated folder that you want to share, and then click Share and Publish in Namespace.

  4. In the Share and Publish Replicated Folder Wizard, click Share the replicated folder, and then follow the steps in the wizard.

To share a replicated folder and publish it to a DFS namespace

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

  2. In the console tree, under the Replication node, click the replication group that contains the replicated folder you want to share.

  3. In the details pane, on the Replicated Folders tab, right-click the replicated folder that you want to share, and then click Share and Publish in Namespace.

  4. In the Share and Publish Replicated Folder Wizard, click Share and publish the replicated folder in a namespace, and then follow the steps in the wizard.

Additional considerations

  • To perform this procedure, you must meet the security requirements for managing DFS Replication and namespaces. If folders will be shared as part of the Share and Publish Replicated Folder Wizard, you must also be a member of the local Administrators group on the servers where each folder is shared.

  • If you do not have an existing namespace, you can create one in the Namespace Path page in the Share and Publish Replicated Folder Wizard. To create the namespace, in the Namespace Path page, click Browse, and then click New Namespace.
