I'am speaking of 'direction' in this questions but maybe it isn't the best word. Please correct me if I'm wrong after the full question.
We have 2 file servers, one of them is the active one, and the other is the passive (or backup).
We mainly sync them in after hours, when nobody is working, but time to time, we need to sync them while the users are working.
In that case, and using robocopy, we have two options:
- Launch robocopy from the ACTIVE with the direcction of ACTIVE (local Disks) to \PASSIVE(Remote Disks)
- Launch robocopy from the PASSIVE with the direcction of ACTIVE (local Disks) to \PASSIVE(Remote Disks)
What of this two options will in your opinion impact less on the performance of the active file server?
My opinion is that launching from the passive will impact less on the performance because of the slowness of SMB protocol... Am I correct?
