Ned here again. The cat is out of the bag now and we're a little more free to talk about DFSR features that are planned (not guaranteed - planned ) to release with Windows Server 2008 R2. Our friends at the File Cabinet blog have posted an excellent writeup - definitely worth a look:

DFS Replication: What’s new in Windows Server™ 2008 R2

Here's the short and sweet list of areas that were added or improved:

  • Support for Windows Failover Clusters
  • Read-only Replicated Folders (now with true filter driver support)
  • SYSVOL on Read-only Domain Controllers (leveraging the improved Read-only functionality)
  • Diagnostics Improvements (DFSRDIAG adds support for replication state, record translation, and file hash checking for pre-seeding)


You can try all these out in a test environment right now - hurry up and grab the ISO's before it's too late.
