Hi all,

In a Win2k3 domain I have two DC with DFS Replication and published folders
in namespaces. Now, I should replace the hard disk that contains replicated
folders on the secondary DC because almost full and I would like to know if
when I replace the hard disk is automatically recreated the DFS Replication.

Thanks

I am not sure but you could easily remove the replication group first. Wait for
the configuration to replicate then swap the disk and re-create the replication
group.

If you simply replace the disk you must be prepared for the replication engine
to replicate the "empty" folder to the full one. I would not take that chance.
It may work OK but then again it may not. Its your gamble.

Well, I think choose first solution :)

Thanks again
