Good day all, I have a situation where I am having a hard time finding any solid answers. My company recently acquired another company, and we need to have a lot of their data locally, while leaving it onsite for the old company to continue to work with for the foreseeable future.
I am currently suggesting that we make use of our existing DFS roots, and make sure of the replication abilities of DFS.
The servers in question are running either Windows 2003R2, 2008, 2008R2, so the newer DFS replication is an option. Remote = 2003R2 Local existing DFS = 2008 <--> 2008R2
The problem I face is that the two domains are only trusted, and do not share the same forest.
Is it possible to set up DFS replication in this situation, as well as a common DFS root, and if so, how can I accomplish this?
