Migrate data from one server to another with DFS

Migrate data from one server to another with DFS

In previous articles we explained how to migrate a SBS 2011 to Windows Server 2012 R2 (Essentials) and how we migrate a server with Windows Server 2012 R2 to new hardware but we did not spend a lot of time on the migration of the actual files, folders and shares on those servers. We mentioned that you can use Robocopy but there is a better way of doing this.

Migrating files and folders with DFS keeps permissions all in place and once you have configured the replication partners just let it sit and do its work. You can even schedule and throttle traffic so that it does interfere daily work. Any other way of migrating files and folders is IMHO silly if you have done this once with DFS
