I currently have 2 Server 2008 R2's running in 2 separate locations.
All files currently reside on these servers and are replicated between each other over VPN via DFSR and it has worked for us for a while now.
We are however very quickly running out of storage.
I am thinking of purchasing an external rackmount NAS to incorporate into the network however here is where it gets a bit confusing for myself.
How does the server know that the files are located for users on the NAS (I understand I can use group policy for folder redirection for users etc pointing to a "home folder" on the NAS) and more importantly how does folder permissions work on an external NAS rather than a HDD within the server as as far as I know each NAS has it's own users?
This may sound like a rather dumb question but I'm sure a quick explanation from someone would clear things up.
Thanks in advance, Chris
