Server A and B have DFS-R.

If I want to reboot Server B and all clients connect to server A, do I need to disable folder targets for Server B still?

No, just reboot it. You may get small outages if they are the only targets - otherwise clients fall over - but you can do that ona weekend or evening.

Yeah there were a few software updates and requires a restart. I just don't want to kill any replication if it was occuring during reboot. I guess doing so after hours would be better. Just need to do it remotely. – Markaway Jan 3 '13 at 15:50
Replications is made to be durable and survive that ;) – TomTom Jan 3 '13 at 16:19
