How can I setup DFS to replicate to three servers across my WAN? Do the DFS partners need to be part of my domain or just Windows 2003 server or better?

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

It depends on what type of DFS structure you selected.

If you selected a domain namespace then the servers will need to be on the same domain/forest or trusted.

If you selected a single namespace then you can only use the single DFS server.

Replication will work over a WAN as long as each domain or site can talk back to the original DFS domain to authenticate.
