FSMT and DFS Consolidation Root Wizard

    If I am using the FSMT to migrate selected directories from a W2K server to a
    W2K3 server, and I am not interested in preserving the server names, do I
    have to use the DFS Consolidation Root Wizard? The new server is already
    established, the new name is established.

    If I am migrating, and at the end of the migration I am going to remove the
    source server from the network and change the name of the target server to
    the name of the source server, do I need to use the wizard?

    Or am I going to be forced to have a DFS root server somewhere? If so, does
    it have to be on a separate box, or can it be on a W2K3 box running other
    apps?

  2. Hi,

    Regarding the conception about DFS, please refer to following article:

    <http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/technologies/storage/dfs/default
    .mspx>

    In other words, you don't need this wizard since you only have one file
    server.

    Thanks.
