Shared folders
I have set up a distrubuted file system for our company. I have tried out some thins, and they work fine, I only have one problem, and I don’t even know if it is possible, but I was hoping you could tell me I have a folder strucktur today that goes \serverfolderfolder2folder3 and so on The namespace is \domain.nonamespace The folder I have put into the namespace is folder Now, when I go to \domain.nonamespacefolder i come to the share that is used today. We have different location’s within our company, so some of the folders on the share would be nice to replicate, so the people on location1 and location2 uses the same share, but some files the get from server2 You know what I mean? And this is ofcourse possible if I replicate the whole share, and add 2 folders to the name space so that folder is stored in server and server2 But is it possible to do the following I go in to \domain.nonamespacefolderfolder2folder3 And WHEN I enter folder 3, this folder Is replicated, so when everybody works on folder 2, they are on server. When people work on folder3 and sits at location1 they work on server, and when people from location2 works on folder3 they work on server2 and if server goes down, they work on server1 and opposite. Is this possible to do? If so, how? Maby DFS is not the right program to use with my issue ? Hope you understand my issue and excuse my bad English. Hope you can give me an answer

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

DFS is the ideal way to implement this. DFS practically eliminates the idea of who is accessing which server. It determines the fastest connection to the resource and supplies a centralized location to manage your file servers. You can setup replication locations on both servers, so if one goes down the second server will still have the informaiton.
