When we migrate our production DCs to Server 2008 I would also like to move away from FSR to DFS-R for SYSVOL replication. My problem is that I setup a quick lab to test it out but it's not going as planned. I'm sure I'm just overlooking something obvious but I can't seem to figure out what :)
Here's what I'm doing 1. Installed two server 2008 machines (R2) and promoted them to domain controllers - with Server 2008 (Not R2) being the forest and domain functional levels.
Verify that standard replication is working by placing some stuff in SYSVOL and make sure it ends up on the second domain controller.
I then attempt to start the DFS-R migration process but dfsrmig.exe /setglobalstate 0 or dfsrmig.exe /setglobalstate 1 both report that I'm already at stage 3 ('Eliminated')..
So what am I missing?
