Scenario is as follows:
1. 300GB of data on SERVER01
2. Backed up this data and restored using NTBACKUP to the new server
SERVER02 (recreated shares and checked security perm's all exactlty
the same as SERVER01)
3. Data is 1 day old on SERVER02 and replication is currently taking
place between the 2 x servers. Has been running for 15hrs so far.
4. SERVER01 is primary. (authorative)
My question is.. even though I have the data now on SERVER02 will it
still take a long time to build the initial database up and check all
I tested a couple of users on the new DFS Name spaces today and
everything was all sweet until they mentioned their document was 1 day
Question is.. how do I tell when replication may be finished?. When
would be a good time to get all users over to the new DFS system?. How
long roughly should it take for it to sort itself out on a 100mb link
remembering there is 300GB of data?. How will I know when everythings
all sweet? without going through 100's and 1,000's of folders??.
Finally are there any good graphical tools to see what DFS is doing in
the background? What files it is replicating.. etc .
Hope I havent asked too many questions :)
Thanks in advance for your help
