Hi guys,

I have two sites with shared folders replicated through namespace.
There is a replication group SITE1-SITE2
Replication is configured as on the screenshots below.

151087-dfs-namespace-02.jpg

In the SITE1 There is another server SERVER2SITE1 that I need to add as a new member of the replication group.
On the SERVER2SITE1 I created "CM", "DFSRTEST and "HK" folders.
If I add that member clicking New Member how replication will work?

I mean which way replication will work.
My concern is will a new member start to replicate files from the existing replication group members and not vice versa.
(Otherwise if the existing replication group members will replicate from the new member then all files will be gone)
