Windows Server 2008 Clusters and DFS replications

I'm currently running a Server2k3 cluster for my file servers. This cluster
has 2 nodes and 3 packages. 1 package for users, 1 package for
non-replicated data at each site, and 1 package for replicated data using DFS
replication. As it currently stands, the package for DFS replication does
not work properly, and I cannot host it on both nodes.

I'm not really asking for a fix to this problem. However, what I'd like to
know is what Microsoft has planned for 2k8. Is DFS replication in 2k8
cluster aware?

Thanks

Hello Nathan_Gau,

Maybe this helps you:

I found this article about DFS on cluster 2003:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813552/en-us

Have a look here for 2008, high availability for file servers:

Search for "What new functionality is provided by DFS Namespaces?"

Best regards

Nope - DFS Namespace only.
