Hi,

In DFS you can replicatie the folder link content with DFS but i would like to sync the DFS settings.
I have multiple domain controllers with multiple namespaces and multiple links. Do i really need to create each link or namespace of each DFS server or is there a much smarter way?

Thanks for the replies

Hello @TommyB,

 

This can simply be done by installing the DFS Namespace role on a new server, and add that server to the current DFS Namespace(s), then the new server will automatically replicate the DFSRoot folder structure.

 

Best regards,
Leon
