Pop Quiz: Windows Server 2012 R2: Upgrading SYSVOL to DFSR

Q: A company's directory services team needs to upgrade SYSVOL (System Volume) replication to DFSR (Distributed File System Replication) available in Windows Server 2012.

Which command is used to upgrade SYSVOL replication to DFSR?

  1. Repadmin.exe
  2. DFScmd.exe
  3. DFSRDIAG.exe
  4. DFSRMIG.exe
