  • DFS Target selection

    Hi there,

    I just recently setup a share replication using DFRS at the office.

    1 shared folder with multiple sub folders being replicated on 2 different servers.
    ( one server in Canada, the other in France )

    My question is ::

    Considering the users all use the same sharename to access this share, what determines which server they are actually working on ?

    I made a few tests so far but nothing is really conclusive. For instance, I connected to a machine in montreal and mapped the share. Then I created a dummy text file on the share and it appeared in Paris server first...

    Please enlighten me

    Are you mapping the share or the DFS root?

    DFSR is site-aware so its based on how your AD Sites are defined.

      Hi again,

      thanks for the prompt reply.

      Here's the thing,

      we have many sites but they all have the same site costs ... ( I did not put the infrastructure up )

      I am mapping using the info found when I right click a dfs link
