Say i've 2 replicated servers. One master (server A), one receiving partner.
(server B)

After the master repllicates all data to receiving partner for some days,
both are equal partners now , both can replicate files to each other.

Now that Server A needs to be shutdown to transport to another city - 3 days
shutdown..

What shld i do ?

a) remove the server A from replication ? If i removed it, subsequently when
join back, server A needs to become a receiving partner and i need to make
server B a master server ?

b) Or should i temporary ignore it and make no changes to the DFS and wait
for server A to be online again ?

Delete the replication group, ship the server to the location, setup the
replication group again using the correct member as the source.

Why would you recommend deleting the replication group rather then just
shipping the server as-is?
