I've got a DFS setup with three servers, the primary running Server 2008, and the other two running Server 2008 R2. My users are constantly seeing the DFS folders disappear. If they change the active server (properties, DFS, active), the folders return. Is anybody else experimenting with 2008 R2 and seeing this behavior?

I would verify if the primary server running Win 2k8 can participate in your replication group without R2 technology.

So for windows 2008 - must run R2 ?

Pure windows 2008 cannot perform DFS ? I thought that works in my lab .

I haven't a clue what Danny is talking about, but 2008 absolutely does
support DFS and DFS-R, R2 is not needed.

With Win 2k3 R2 each member of the replication group needs to be at the R2
level. I was suggesting the OP check to make sure Win 2k8 does not have the
same requierments.

2008 has no such requirement and fully supports DFS and DFS-R.

Thanks for the info. I kind of figured it was that way but I wasn't sure.
