This webcast walks you through the essential steps in the process of migrating from the File Replication service (FRS) to the new Distributed File System (DFS) Replication service available in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2. We begin by showing you how to identify which FRS replica sets to migrate and how to collect FRS configuration settings. Next, learn how to delete the old FRS replica set configuration and the associated FRS system folders. Then learn how to clean up Microsoft Active Directory to remove all FRS remnants. Finally, we demonstrate how to deploy DFS replication. URL: http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/WebCastEventDetails.aspx?EventID=1032287370&EventCategory=4&culture=en-US&CountryCode=US
