robocopy DFS Drive to another server

Copper Contributor

I am having problem p2v a physical dfs server E drive. 


So I wonder if I can robocopy the E drive (DFS Shares) to the new server


The problem is I need to keep the new server the same name as the old.


Can I do this?


1. Temporily rename the new destination server to server1


2. have them both on the domain


3. robocopy the E drive from source to destination


4. shutdown the old server


5. rename the new server to the old server


will this work?

@dragonMir This server doing DFS Replication or just a namespace server?
