Hello. I am hoping that someone more experienced with these services can\nprovide some feedback on the following comments.\n\nWe are a large UK based Secondary school occupying two sites. The sites are\nlinked using Gigabit Fibre and all our servers run Windows Server 2003\nEnterprise edition and our clients XP PRO with a mix of SP1 & SP2.\n\nOur school consists of around 1700 students, 120 staff and 700 pc's, we have\naround 10 servers running Exchange, SMS, ISA, Linux, Print Server etc. We\nhave a general network resource drive with about 10GB of data which is\nreplicated using DFR-RFS between sites. This resource drive is 95% read only\nwith a very low churn rate of not more than a couple of MB a day. FRS seems\nto be working very well for this drive.\n\nWe would like to use DFS / RFS for our student & staff home folders to\nprovide load balancing and fault tolerance. Our user data is currently just\nover 100GB in size and we estimate that we have a churn rate of not more\nthan 7GB spread across the day.\n\nI have the choice of a new Server 2003 or Storage Server 2003 system to\nconfigure as our first replication partner but on checking out the Microsoft\nrecommendations I am concerned that we have considerably more than the 64GB\ndata limit Microsoft specify. My questions:-\n\nIs this limit per site, domain or replica set?\nCan one pair of servers host more than one replica sets to get around this\nlimit? If not how come the jet database and staging areas can be terabytes\nin size?\n\nIs the DFS/replication supported by Storage Server 2003 more robust and\nscalable? IE will it support replicating our 100GB of data?\n\nWhat about Server 2003 R2, Is this a better bet than Storage Server 2003 for\nour requirements?\n\nPlease understand that I have researched these questions and I have vague\nanswers to most of these questions but I am looking for feedback from\nsomeone who has been at the sharp end of implementing something along the\nlines of my proposed solution. In fact any insight at all is very much\nappreciated.\n\nThank you for taking time to read this.\n\nAndy.
