I have two file servers, Server A and Server B. Both servers are in different locations.
We used DFS for syncing the folder/files from server A to B and B to A.
It was working fine for the past 4 years, suddenly in server A, DFS DB got corrupted.
I have deleted all the DFS replication members and groups and reset DFS Sys Volume folder.
Now I need to sync the existing folders & files. The folder is in big size (420GB).
Site A and Site B have the same folder but Site A & B had some changes after the DB corruption.
Let’s say Site A have 420GB of data and site B have 419.5GB of data.
I am confused, how I will start the replication again. If I create a new group b/w site A and B then how it will react? I don’t want an initial synchronization because of the data size and internet bandwidth.
When I search I saw some pre-seed technique, I don’t know how it will work with my case.
How to solve this without initial sync? Please advise.
