DFS Replication – Best way to migrate a file server

Hi everyone

Today I wanted to do a lightweight post, as I seen a lot of IT folks still use robocopy and manual’s way to migrate fileserver.

With DFS support from 2008R2 to up to today, never forget that DFS is a nice approach now. You don’t need to create a namespace, just the replication folder.

I seen so much horror from robocopy, bad param that forget the file security, or too long path that prevent a copy.. I just wanted to share the method.
