I'm in the process of researching and setting up Distributed File System (DFS) in our environment. From all the articles I've read, I've decided that I want to install the namespace server on the Domain Controller. Here's my question(s). We have two domain controllers so that we have AD redundancy (in case on is down). If I install DFS-N on both of the domain controllers, will they automatically provide DFS Root redundancy for each other? In all the articles I've read, I'm still not clear if I should have two DFS root namespace servers and if so, if they automatically provide root redundancy. If not, can it be setup manually, and how?
My current thinking is that I should install DFS-N on both domain controllers for redundancy. I just need some expert direction. Thanks.
We're running Windows Server 2008 R2, is running at 2003 Domain and Forest functional Level. We're small and all our servers are in the same LAN.
