Migration from Distributed File System 2003 to 2008


I have two Windows Server 2003 and both have DFS and it does replication between them.

I would like to migrate the primary win2k3 DFS server to win2k8. what is the best way to do that?

I found this article:
Migrate a Domain-based Namespace to Windows Server 2008 Mode

But I am interested only on migrating the DFS replication and not the namespace.

You say that you already have a new 2008 server that you want to use, so this is trivial. Wether or not you choose to keep the old 2003 server running has no impact.

Just add the 2008 server as a DFS member and set up replication.
