I currently have a VM architecture setup for high availability / manageability. The one point of failure is that I have a single windows 2008 machine that runs DFS replication across the servers in my web server farm.
I am upgrading the virtual environment to 2012 and I would like to use a windows failover cluster in place of the single machine. Can I run the DFS replication manager on the nodes of the cluster? All the info I find is about adding the cluster to a DFS replication set and I dont want to do that. I want to replicate the shared local storage of each web server node so the cluster does not store the data it just manages the syncing.
Also, if there is a better way to do what I am trying to accomplish please let me know.
Keep in mind that I would also like to use the cluster for a SQL AOG setup too, so thats why I was thinking I could kill two birds with one stone by running DFS on it as well.
