    Say i've 2 replicated servers. One master (server A), one receiving partner.
    (server B)

    After the master repllicates all data to receiving partner for some days,
    both are equal partners now , both can replicate files to each other.

    Now that Server A needs to be shutdown to transport to another city - 3 days
    shutdown..

    What shld i do ?

    a) remove the server A from replication ? If i removed it, subsequently when
    join back, server A needs to become a receiving partner and i need to make
    server B a master server ?

    b) Or should i temporary ignore it and make no changes to the DFS and wait
    for server A to be online again ?

    Delete the replication group, ship the server to the location, setup the
    replication group again using the correct member as the source.

    Why would you recommend deleting the replication group rather then just
    shipping the server as-is?
