Add a replicated folder to a replication group

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 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.


  • Replication of the new replicated folder does not begin immediately. The new DFS Replication settings must be replicated to all domain controllers, and each member in the replication group must poll its closest domain controller to obtain these settings. The amount of time this takes depends on Active Directory replication latency and the long polling interval (60 minutes) on each member.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group in Active Directory, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority for the replication group and be a member of the local Administrators group on each member. If you are the creator of the replication group, you can also perform this procedure if you are a member of the local Administrators group on each member.

  • To check the status of replication, or to troubleshoot replication, create a diagnostic report. For more information, see Create a diagnostic report for DFS Replication.
