We're currently using 2 Windows 2008 R2 with DFS but discovered some issues with:
- replication of permissions (permissions are not replicated across DFS members)
- replication of quota (quota is disk-based)
Do these problems exist in clusters? Meaning, if we set the permission/quota on a folder in a member cluster, will all members of that cluster inherit the permission/quota? We will have a dedicated servers (HP P4300 Lefthand) and we plan to use it for the file servers as well. So, our choices are: DFS or fail-over cluster.
