    I have done quite a bit of research on this now and have not found any clear
    process of how to do this so I figured I would ask!

    We currently have a 2 server DFS root set up in one of our domains that
    exists on aging hardware. I have two new servers that I have installed
    2008R2 on and would like to implement as the new DFS servers.

    The current servers are named 'user1' and 'user2'. Before i really knew
    much about this I figured I could simply name the new ones 'user3' and
    'user4' and set them up in the dfs tree and it would replicate the data to
    them and then remove the old ones. Well what I do know is its not that
    simple. What I don't know is how to actually get it going.

    Does anyone know of any white papers or articles that detail transferring a
    2003R2 DFS tree to 2008R2 servers?

    Thanks so much!

    Why? I just set up a W2003R2 server as the replica of a W2008R1 server and so
    far no issue as emerged. What are you getting.
