    Package Copy

    Hi Guys,

    Can anyone help? I have 2 sites connected together and we are reducing the amount of traffic down the link during the day. So we have decided to have 2 "Software" shares and i want to have them copy from the Main Server (Server1) to the server on the other site (Server2). This way the tech on the other site can manage software installs from there servers instead of dragging it down the link.

    The solution i am looking for ideally would be free. Something to copy the files on a schedule, and leave me a log file so i can examine it and see if any copies didnt work.

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks
    Stuart

    How about using Robocopy with the /MIR switch to Mirror every so often.

    Hi,
    I am using a Windows 2003 Server. DFS looks like the answer but when i was setting it up my hand just became tangled and to be honest I did get a bit lost.

    an excellent walkthrough can be found:

    Windows 2003 DFS (Distributed File System)

    I think Robocopy would be the solution I would go far as well.
