Upgrading form DFS/FRS to DFS-R with 2k3 R2

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by news.microsoft.com, Mar 5, 2006.

  1. Is there how-to documentation on upgrading a 2k3SP1 domain/forest with
    DFS/FRS to the new DFS-R on 2K3 R2.

    Do I upgrade the schema on the domain controllers first and then install R2
    on all servers. Then what do I do to start migrating to the DFS-R.

    Will the old DFS/FRS work on 2K3 R2 till the new DFS-R is configured and

  2. If you are looking for doing sysvol replication using DFSR -- then that is
    not supported for R2. Next version of OS release would have that.

    It would be best that you upgrade the schema before installing R2 on all
    Yes, but it's best that you have them migrated to the new R2 too:
