I have a server that is added as a DFS target in a DFS namespace. The target is fine but is not added to the existing replication group for replicating contents of that folder. At one point it looks like it was a member as it has the same data and file structure but I'm not sure how long it has been removed from the replication group. I have been researching the issue and it looks like if I add it back to the replication group as a member (being that content freshness is enabled on ALL DFS replication members) it will kick off an initial non-authoritative sync and replicate any files missing since it went offline to the share and NOT replicate any stale data to the other member. Wondering if anyone has done this before

Many Thanks!!
