  • Hi,

    This should work.

    One question though are your Domain Controllers (DCs) only used as DFS Namespace servers as you have marked them both with "DFS", and the "DFS Server02" is the file server where all the data is stored?

    Or where is the data located?

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Hi,

    The DFS can be a domain controller or a member server and there is no specific hardware or software limitations. 

    If you need more detail suggestion about DFS, I would recommend you to post on File Services and Storage forum, as we are mainly discussing question about branch office function, and your question about DFS is beyond the support scope on this forum:

    Thank you for your understanding.

  • Preferably you should run Hyper-V on a separate server, but if you have limited resources then you can run both File Server and Hyper-V roles on the Domain Controller.

    The Domain Controllers can be DFS Namespace servers just fine.
