Over at the Filecab blog, AskDS alum and all-around nice guy Ned Pyle has posted the first of several blogs about new features coming your way in Windows Server 2012 R2.  If you're a DFS administrator or just curious, go take a look!

Ned promises more posts in the near future, and Filecab is near and dear to our hearts here in DS (they make a bunch of things we support), so if you don't already have it on your RSS feed list, it might be a good time to add it.

HI, Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this but I would like a Microsoft Article on Recommendations around hosting/storing Databases on DFS/R. We have a client that would like to put a Flat File Database on DFS/R and I would like to provide supporting info to not do this (cause everything I have found is against it and also it makes sense as it is a file that is in use by many users and when it would replicate it would take the last write and then mess-up the DB). Happy to be proven wrong or guided in a direction of a good solution.
