When will we see read-only access to the destination volume in a Storage Replica? Will this integrate with DFS where SMB clients are aware of the read-write and read-only nodes and select the appropriate one (similar to SQL AlwaysOn)?
In RS3 the option to have a mounted R/W snapshot will be possible for
backups, reading/copying off files, testing VMs, validating DR plans,
validating replication consistency, etc. It is not designed as an
"always up" solution though in this first release.
