What is DFS?
The Distributed File System (DFS) technologies offer wide area network (WAN)-friendly replication as well as simplified, highly available access to geographically dispersed files. The general model is that there is a Host or Namespace node where the original data resides. The data is replicated to the replication node.
How to check for Host/Replication node?
-Check system for DFS writers in cmd line: vssadmin list providers
-In the backup selection list, check under the Shadow Copy Components for DFS.
-The DFS management console.
