Can someone please merge these tags? People use both terms to ask/answer questions on DFS Replication.

Thanks M

They've been merged. I even combined the tag-wikis because I'm nice.

    I don't really understand the inner working of synonyms and merging, so perhaps I misunderstand what this means, but that's like merging Windows and Windows-7. DFS is a banner for two related technologies: DFS-R and DFS Namespaces. DFS and DFS-R are not analogous. – MDMarra Dec 16 '11 at 17:23
  • Also, the OP edited this to contain the dfs-r tag after this was done. Shouldn't this have made that unnecessary? – MDMarra Dec 16 '11 at 17:24
  • I agree with @MDMarra - if someone told me to investigate DFS, I would not assume they were referencing replication and vice versa. Though close, they are distinct. – Dan Dec 16 '11 at 17:25

    @MDMarra We're talking about "DFSR" and "DFS-R". Same thing, one with a hypen, one without. The "DFS" tag is still there with 129 questions on it. – sysadmin1138 Dec 16 '11 at 17:25
  • @MDMarra I added dfs-r because it was more relevant. I removed DFS as there was no evidence of a question related to namespaces. And yes I wish people would use DFSN or DFSR specifically. But they dont and when DFS is mentioned, clarification is often required. – maweeras Dec 16 '11 at 17:26
  • Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. My brain somehow missed the R in DFSR. In my defense, @Dan missed it too apparently :D – MDMarra Dec 16 '11 at 17:26
  • @MDMarra sent me here and I just scan read it. I lose! – Dan Dec 16 '11 at 17:28
