Windows 2008 Server at Data Center 1 - call it
Another Windows 2008 Server at DC 2, call it
Fiber link dynamic IP client, connected via VPN to
Server B, call it
Client A wants to see shared drives from
Server A can't allow everyone through the firewall, so it is configured for
Server B to access it's shared folders, via firewall hole. Idea is to map
Server As drives on
Server B, then re-share them for
We know that this is not possible per se. So, I tried junction points, they don't work with shared drives. I tried DFS, and found out that:
When browsing a folder in the namespace, users are not aware that the folder is hosted by multiple servers. When a user opens the folder, the client computer is automatically referred to a server on its site. If no same-site servers are available, you can configure the namespace to refer the client to a server that has the lowest connection cost as defined in AD DS.
Is there any way to get DFS to re-share a network drive?
I am grasping at straws here, and am referring to the last part of above quoted paragraph, how should I configure the DFS mount point so that it doesn't REDIRECT, but RE-SHARE?
Server B can't store complete copy of the data from
Server A, since server a is collecting data at a rate of 100GB/day.
