FRS on W2K3 R2 SP2 Non-Domain Servers

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by news.microsoft.com, Sep 10, 2007.

  1. Hello,

    I've got a web server farm going with a handful of W2K3 R2 SP2 servers in
    it. These servers are all installed as stand-alone servers in a workgroup(no
    AD, only a local SAM database on each). I'd like to enable file replication
    on the web root directory such that any files I push to that directory on
    one server, designated as the master, will automatically replicate to the
    same directory on all the other servers.

    I tried DFS but it does not seem to have an option to enable replication
    unless I use AD. Am I missing something?

    Thanks,

    JackC

    Hi
    No, that's correct. AD is needed for DFS, FRS and DFSR.
