Configuring DFS Replication This lesson covers configuring DNS replication. In DNS replication, we need to configure a number of settings so things can replicate. The first step in this process is making sure DFS roles is installed on the system. This lab-based lesson offers participants step by step instructions in DFS replication. Participants learn about setting a replication group name and replication eligibility, replicating the group schedule and bandwidth.

after getting d. F s set up on our environments, the defense is configured on one service so far the defense needs space and full. The targets were going to what? To create some fault tolerance. So that's what we're going to do. Replication in replication. We need to figure a few settings so that things could replicate. First of all, we need to make sure that other service has
dfx replication
roll installed on it so I can replicate doesn't necessarily need the day's base on it. You can't have it. It's strictly a case by case basis, but we're actually going to now set up our environment to have some fault tolerance. So in our names basis that our defense measure council under our proposals, unless we have
a full the target we have one. We actually want to add a full the target to this list. So gonna click on
our options paid. Actually, pains added, fold the target. It would put a folder target in, so we're going to call this would,
and we want to make sure it's clear to us that we're looking at it. But he slashed other slash
L o N Dash FDR
for we could give things the same name. But this particular case, we're not going to because we're gonna want to make it a little bit clearer. So we're gonna do proposal docks without another score. This time, we're gonna put that as a shared folder path on the
other server and quick out okay
and says that doesn't exist, which is fine. It's what we expected. So we're going to click on Yes,
and we want to give the local path on the other server. So we want to put in the local that's a C colon backslash, and then we're gonna call it the same thing. So it's proposal
docks, no underscore this time so we could see the difference between the two of them.
Make sure that we have simultaneously
ST privileges. So we want to have the full permission to be the same. A. Besides, if you don't get a recap a cod your
and it tells us the folder doesn't exist. So we click on Yes,
it says a replication group could be used to keep these full target folders synchronized. Absolutely. It's kind of what it's all about. You should want to replicate so we can go and click on the Yes, here to open up. Our wizard,
you know, should bring up a wizard for us to start the process of
creating a replication environment.
It's not that complex. It actually runs through a collect status, and it's going to work out details here, it says, Pull the target information one of two Adams their progress. It was, though, that give us
two of two items and it tell us any errors that we have in terms of the process
that matters, because if we have an air, we need to fix itself. We didn't have any airs. We come appear to replication group and replicated full name as part of the Wizard. So in terms of replicated you before the name
we can set, we can change it if we want to go live with the actual default settings. So the Replication group name is a research proposals and replicated for the name is proposals that's fine
cooking next
and notices The Wizard has evaluated the folder targets to determine whether they could participate as replication partners.
See the eligibility. Common bonuses. Yes, ad is a D. F s replication member. So you got that one. And this one? You have both of those. You know, they're gonna be added as a defense replication member going next.
It says Who's the primary river? So, basically,
where's the contact restored? That I would replicate the other four. The targets the service known is probably remember in this particular case, where to do our local server, where the name spaces associate it. Several one
and we could actually choose to put out server for if we wanted. But we have to click on next. And then we have the technology we have published book which requires at least three dfx machines to do it.
Ah, full MASH, which means everybody talks to each other or no typology, no topology means we can manually create art apology.
We may need to do that in a highly complex environment. Full Nash will really have to. Defense service is gonna be full mess. It's not a problem. They replicate both directions. Hey, we could choose what we need, and we're going to move on and click next, and it says
whether we're gonna replicate well, that matters. So if we replicate, how often is it good to be continuously using the specified bandwith, or we're going to continuously using
present perhaps a limited bandwidth, say, 256 Meg's or full for a gigabit system. Then there's gonna be using a gig in it. It just kind of offensive the bandwidth of your environment. Do you want to have scaled down limited version for your work
defense? Replication depends. What's going in the folder can matter to if it's just basically documents, 256 minutes is probably fine if you're putting videos or a lot of image or cat drawings you might actually want to consider full band with or we could replicate during the specified days and times. If we click on that, we would edit schedule.
We could replicate at certain times of the day,
and to choose that it's his local time of receiving members. So you want a facial replication on the U. T. C or the local time of the receiving member. That's up to you. Remember the receiving member, and if you click details down here, you get more information after you made a selection so you could select something and put in a band with usage. Full replication. Choose your options.
We're not going to do that. We're gonna leave it as replicate continuously for our environment. But we obviously see we could run the schedule. We click on next,
and it gives us review the settings for creating a replication group and gives them our members. The location knows here says we have It is too different
replicated folder past at two different primary folders. So
we have a single name as far as our end uses a concern, but in terms of where the data story could be stored in two places and we go ahead and click on
Create and it would actually go through the process of creating it. And it tells us
it was successful at all factors and that there were no errors reported to click out. Clothes and replication will not begin until the configurations picked up by the members of the replication group. By the time the stakes depends on a D. D s application, late and see is pulling. So basically when we have replication happened is based on our A d replication
time period,
so it might be a few minutes. It could be hours. It depends on what your setup that gives us our environment that we have set up for a new replication group.
Now, if we wanted to, we could actually go through and have put the band within the replication day time. And we could have We could go back and modify this in the future.
What's we actually have one set up? We can't You go through our replication environment that we can right click on the replication and we can look at the properties of it and we can actually modify our environment because here we have looking at a schedule option. So we cook at a schedule and we could change the details there after the fact. If we decide, we need to change it
so that stuck with just the liver stick of what we put in initially.
And that's how we get replication set up and running in R D efs environment. Now, any day that we put in those folders will get replicated at a real time basis was continuously after the replication configuration is picked up by both, or more than two might be 345 10 could be a lot of service. Once it's all picked up
across the board back to directory,
we will then be ableto have replication throughout our environment.
