  • File Replication

    Hi, I need some advice or recommended best practice for file replication. I manage two sites under one domain permanently connected via VPN, let's call them "Site A" and "Site B". Both of these sites have File Servers, let's call them "File Server A" and "File Server B". Domain Controller are in place at both sites. These locations are geographically close to each other and frequently users may be at either site. I wish to implement a GPO to redirect each user's documents to a file server. If they are at "Site A" I want to redirect "My Documents" to "Site A File Server". If they are at "Site B" I want to redirect "My Documents" to "Site B File Server". I can then implement DFS Replication to synchronize redirected "My Documents" folders so they will be updated across the domain. Implementation of redirected "My Documents" to associated File Server is my problem. It is very easy to redirect "My Documents". I do not see how to redirect to the site related file server. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks, Greg Howey.

    I am giving you a step by step guide for this redirection process. Apply this at both the ends. Read and follow carefully. It is a pdf document.

    Hope it helps you.
    Update again.

    Thank you

        That was the link for a .pdf file which was very long. I made it short that's it. Fine, let me post it then.

          Among other "problems" we have had here are people posting masked URLs to malware etc, hence we prefer (actually require) unmasked URLs so people can see where they are linking to

          Since all that is required is a copy/paste, there should be no problem doing so.

            Yes, I understand. Thanks for the suggestion, I will follow it.

              Hello.

              I am in exactly the same situation, but the link to the PDF no longer works.

              Is it possible to repost the location?

              Cheers

              Dave
