I’m in the process of retiring an old Server 2003 DC that is also a DFS member for file replication for several shares in the namespace. I have setup a new Dell NAS with Server 2016 and it is also a member of DFS and properly replicating the shares. I would like to retire the old server with 2003 but I need to keep DFS setup on the network as I’m also replicating to a remote site over SSLVPN. What is the proper way to remove a DFS member server without killing or damaging DFS? I will DCpromo the old 2003 DC following DFS member removal.
I have read your guide on DFS setup but it doesn’t really describe DFS member removal. It shows DFS deletion.
Thanks for any input. Ken
