Server-based DFS to domain-based?

    I recently got a new job as a network admin, and one of my first
    assignments was to setup a branch office. I installed a w2k3 server, and
    created a vpn over a 2mb link to the head office.

    Now i would like to use dfs replication to replicate some directories to
    the branch office.

    In our head office, we have a w2k server as the domain controller. DFS
    is already running with a link to another w2k server in a different

    This was setup by our former network admin, and he made it a
    server-based dfs. I got the "operation is not supported on a
    server-based dfs" message when trying to create a replica.

    I figured out that I need a domain-based DFS for
    replication, it this correct ? Then, is there any way to replace the
    server-based DFS with a domain-based DFS ?

    Thanks for any help !
