Hello,

I'm just wondering if you can safely run 2 different versions of DFS
together, I have a number of servers I want to implement DFS on, however some
of the servers are Windows 2003 and some are Windows 2003 R2.

My DC's which are the name servers are Windows 2003 R2.

Anyone ran this before, any issues encountered?

R2 is the latest - greatest. You should use DFSR. DFSR (R2) will not work
without the partner being R2 also. You can update the Win 2k3 server to R2
by running setup2 from the second disk of the R2 set. It just updates
features.

This refers to replication (DFSR). The name space is quite compatible.
I believe that R2 can do dfs replication but the R2 DFSR is so much better you
should upgrade all servers. W2k3 is like a bicycle compared to the R2 Ferrari
