David,

Do you just want to replicate files on UNC shares? Or is there an exchange
server or SQL server? If the former, I'd just copy the files you want to
backup with a command line utility called rsync. Its, free, open source and
very mature. It has a very efficient delta algorithim so it only transfers
the bits that change.

Check out IP Replicator. It is a mirroring program that you can specify
which shares to replicate and I believe it will handle 2 way replication.

Subject: [PCTECH] Windows server replication?

Folks:

Windows Server is an area I have little experience in.

How difficult is it to setup full server replication between two machines?

In my office we used to have a local Windows Server. The performance was
great.

A few weeks ago the tape drive on the server failed and the ITS group
decided, rather than replace the tape drive, to move our server content to
a machine in a the main data center via remote link.

The problem is, for large data transfers, the performance is not so great.

Before I submit a request ... I'm curious as to how hard it would be to
setup some kind of full server replication between the a local machine
(that wouldn't get backed up) and the remote machine (that would be backed
up).

I'm hoping that we could have a scenario where we get the performance of a
local server with the security of the remote server.

Thanks!
