Configuring Distributed File System Replication (DFSR)
Distributed File System Replication (DFSR) is a piece of DFS that enables automatic file replication between multiple servers. In our first recipe in this chapter, we added the roles and created a DFS Namespace, so we have access into files and folders that are sitting within our DFS environment. So far, though, it is all sitting on a single file server. Follow along to enable the "R" part of DFSR, Replication. We will set up DFSR between the two file servers in our environment, FILE-01 and FILE-02, and test it to make sure that data is being synchronized between the two.
We already have a DFS server online, FILE-01. It is hosting a DFS Namespace with a folder inside. A new file ...
