  • Hi,

  • Hi wogboy112  ,


    Thanks for posting here.


    DFS is available in Windows Small Business Server 2008.

    If you want to use DFS you must use the technology-specific tools in Windows Server 2008 as there are no tools for configuring or managing DFS in the Administration Console.


    To set the DFS namespace and configure DFS-R for replication, it will be identical to standard Windows Server 2008 scenarios.
