Using DFS-Replication and not using DFS-Namespace
File server A (2012) and server B (2019) in the replication group and are in the same physical location. They are also DCs, just an FYI.
File server A was the primary member
Topology is Full Mesh
Multipurpose Replication group
The data size is about 1 TB.
Server A crashed and so was down for a few weeks.
During the downtime, I have disabled the DFS replication schedule.
Server A is now back online (the data partition had to be rebuilt so starting from fresh with no data) and I did the pre-seed robocopy from Server B to Server A to repopulate the data.
Next step, I'm planning to remove server A in DFS management and re-add it (the hostname will be the same as before) in DFS management and enable the replication.
Do I need to do anything else such as deleting all the DFSR private folders on server B?
