7.1 Guidelines for Managing DFS in a Virtualized Environment

Consider the following guidelines when planning a DFS management context in a virtualized environment:

  • DFS is not supported to run on the virtualization host server.

  • Install DFS on the guest server just as you do on a physical server.

  • When selecting a guest server as a replica site, select the Server object of the virtual machine from among the available servers, not the host server’s Server object.
