DFS-Replication Target Permissions (NTFS) Best Practices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have a link to documentation on DFS-Replication Target Permissions (NTFS) Best Practices.

    I want to know what the ideal\required permissions are for replicating Folder A and Folder B. I'm not concerned with share permissions only NTFS e.g. is the SYSTEM account required or not?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi James,

    I tried to search for related document but cannot find a suitable one.

    Here is a KB which provided basic information about DFS permission.

    How To Set File Permissions for Shares in DFS Replica Sets to Apply to All Replicas


    The System should be the basal permission on DFS replication.
