DFSR questions I have 2 2008 R2 Enterprise servers replicating server1 and server2 Initial replication staging was done from server1 to server2 of about 1 TB of data Replication health reports are all OK for 1 to 2 weeks. I'm planning on moving server 2 to a remote site. Replicating 2008 R2 servers have all latest patches installed. DFS is not publishing name space shares to users. I currently only have DFS Replication deployed and working between 2 2008 R2 servers. Active Directory is 2003 R2 latest patches consisting of following: Main site has 2 Active Directory 2003 R2 servers with full AD and AD dns syncing in place and healthy. Main site secondary active directory server is an Active directory Bridge head server connecting to Remote site. Remote site is a 2003 R2 active directory server Remote Wan link is 10Mps over a dedicated site to site VPN link. All AD user and DNS server sync and updates are healthy between Main and remote site. Remote Wan link is 10Mps over a dedicated site to site VPN link. I need to move 2008 R2 File server2 to remote site without replication trying to restage data after changing server2 ip address to subnet ip address at remote site. Do I need to pause or disable replication until server2 is moved.? I assume I can't restart replication until AD sees server2 at new location with new ip subnet address. Can I simply stop dfsr service on each server or do I need to pause or disable folder replication? Is there a cmd I should run to verify AD is up-to-date before restarting replication?
