I currently have a file server running W2k3 R2 with around 1.2 TB of
data. I have moved up through file servers before, and usually copy
everything to the new machine, then rename it the same as the old
The new box I want to move the data to runs Windows 2008 R2, and I was
thinking about using DFS.
The issue I have is the namespace I want to keep is server.domain.com,
and I can't implement that namespace as the old server is currently
using it for ordinary shares.
At present I only have one server, though may introduce more machines.
I have a DR site, but only copy a subset of data to the server DR
site, so replication may be an issue. Is it worth doing?
