2003 R2 - Move DFS namespace server to new site

    I have set-up a DFS Domain BAsed installation. 8 servers, all DCs, all DNS
    as WAN links are very patchy. All servers were built in one site and
    configured for DFS at that site to avoid slow replication issues.

    The servers are shipping to their respective new sites at the moment so have
    not yet had a change to register with the 'Main'/root DC/DNS/DC at head
    office with their new IP addresses. I have in the meantime updated the
    server lcoation in AD sites and servcies with correct subnet for each server.

    Having read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/260857 "DFS Site Information Is
    Not Updated When You Move Server to a New Active Directory Site" I am
    wondering what steps I need to take when the servers come back online at
    their new sites with their correct site based IP addresses-Does DFS in 2003
    R2 sort itself out or is there a procedure I need to follow?

    FWIW, it does reassociate itself correctly.
