Hi All,

I desperatly need some guidance to solve this problem: How do I set up DFS Replication between Win Server 2003 SP2 (not R2) and Win server 2008 R2? :thumbsup:

This is the scenario: Iíve got data on a Win2003 SP2 server, that I want to replicate to a Win Storage Server 2003 SP2, using a Win 2008 R2 server to manage the process (the Win2008 server is a DC).

DFS roles are installed and configured on the Storage and DC servers. Distributed File System is installed and a root configured on the Win2003 server. When I try to add the Win2003 server as a sorce on the Win2008 server, I get the message: ďThe DFS Replication service is not installedĒ. They are all members of the same domain.

How do I get the Win2008 server to connect to the Win2003 server for DFS replication, if at all possible?

Is it possible that DFS is not installed and started on all 3 servers?

It's worth a look.
