Replace hub member RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have to replace the hub member of dfs replication ( i have 5 spoke and 1 hub). Is there is a way to do it without creating all the dfs replication with the new hub member?

    Thanks for help

  • Hi,

    Test to do the following steps:

    1. create a new file server, add it to the replicaiton group and works like a hub server.

    2. Set the new server as a namespace server (if DFS namespace is also configged)

    3. When replication is finished, delete the old hub server from DFSN and DFSR.

    4. Waiting for the AD replication to finish or force an AD replication.

    5. Physically remove the old hub server.
