    Re: How to setup File Replication Service and Distributed File System in Windows 2003

    According to wikipedia, File Replication Service is a Microsoft Windows Server service for distributing folders stored in the SYSVOL shared folder on domain controllers and Distributed File System (DFS) shared folders. This service is part of Microsoft's Active Directory. When the File Replication Service (FRS) detects a change to a file, such as the creation of a new file or the modification to an existing file, it replicates it to other servers in the group.
