Best Practice for Stopping DFS-R 'Hub' Server for Maintenance

    I am curious as to the 'recommended' best-practices for shutting down the
    central ‘hub’ server for maintenance?? Should I disable every connection into
    the ‘hub’ server first, and then shut down the server; or should I just shut
    the server down gracefully and allow the shutdown process to stop DFS-R? In
    other words, is DFS-R resilient enough to handle the graceful shutdown

    I have done the graceful shutdown once, and DFS-R has come back up okay, but
    is now replicating at drastically reduced acceleration rates. Prior to the
    shutdown, we were experiencing acceleration rates of over 96% (40Gb data in
    two shared folders). Now however, the acceleration rate is below 25% and not

    So, based on this, I would imagine disabling the connections would be the
    better way to progress, but with a large number of connections, this could
    become very time consuming.
