I have setup a DFSR replication group as follows and was wanted to confirm this is inline with best practices:
I have 3 servers in the same branch office. Each has a different folder I want to replicate.
I have one "hub" server in a different office where I want to replicate all the folders to.
I setup one replication group between the 4 servers.
In the replication group each of the three branch office servers has a connection to the hub for only their respective folders
The folders the branch office servers are not replicating were left as not defined.
Is this OK? It seems to work great, but the only thing I was concerned about was the undefined folder connections. I haven't read anything saying you shouldn't do this and Windows hasn't logged any events telling me it doesn't like it.
Thank you very much for the reply. I wanted to be sure I wasn't doing something stupid.
After posting this I did some more googling and read on an MS tech blog they say it is preferred to do it that way(one folder per replication group), but for my case one replication group works really well and looks cleaner.
