I have two fileservers (Windows Server 2012 R2) that have joined my domain, namely filesrv01 & filesrv02. These fileservers should both contain exact copies of the user data, and if one fails; the other one should take its place.
I have made a GPO that maps the folders from the first server and activated DFS replication between the two fileservers. The data is now successfully replicated between the sites, but my GPO is only statically mapping to the first fileserver. So if the primary fileserver goes offline, the drive maps get lost. I would like to have the drive maps updated to the secondary fileserver, should the primary fileserver go offline, or alternatively have one path to both destinations.
What would be a practical way of getting this to work the way I intend to?
