I am running File Replication Services on Windows 2003 on Server A. This replicates with a few other branches.
Basically, I need to stop A from replicating, but without making the change in DFS management (for some reason, it gives me an error when trying to look at the replication folders saying
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted).
I want the users at the branch to not have to re-point their mapped drives/shares. How can I go about this? Is FRS a service that can be stopped from services?
I was thinking about modifying the permissions on the share, and although this stopped replication, I assume that those at the local branch will not be able to access it anymore.
Any help appreciated!
