    windows 2003 r2

    After a hub/spoke is done, all members become multi-replication or all equal
    parnters.

    To maintain a hub and NOT to receive updates from branch (hub only pushes
    files to branch), i need to disable connection from branch partners ?

  2. To maintain a hub and NOT to receive updates from branch (hub only pushes

    In the early R2 days they touted one way replication like you are
    suggesting. Then they backed off on one way replication because it would
    "fix" itself and become two way again. Last I heard was not to use one way
    replication. (Win 2k8 may be different)

    If possible on the branch (spokes) I would set permissions so they can not
    add/change files in replicated folder.

    i raise this question because i read a very old article that states that if
    u use hub/spoke, remember to disable one of the direction flow. Otherwise it
    become a mesh network atuomatically (both can send to each other after the
    initial hub/spoke replication completes)

    I don't know whether this is change in win2k8, but i will find from MS then.

    can i cheat the systems by doing the following ?

    a) make a R2 a hub, make a non-r2 a spoke.
    b) non-r2 machine cannot replicate, so it is always a receiver from hub ?

  5. No. When setting up the replication group from the hub, using the DFSR
    management console, when you select the remote replication partner it will
    want the partner to at the R2 level also.

    No. Replication is what handles the data moving both directions, a
    non-R2 machine can neither send nor receive.
