Is there a way to set up a clustered file share so it replicates to a server
a remote site? I read that DFS is not cluster aware.
I was told I can break the cluster and then set up DFS.


We have a 2 node file print cluster running server 2003 R2 and I need to
set up a server at a back up facility.

If this can't be done with a file share can Sharepoint have a mechanism for
this?
Many thanks

You can look at third party replication products such as the one from
my company, SteelEye DataKeeper. DataKeeper will integrate with your
cluster solution to replicate your cluster to a 3rd site for disaster
recovery. There are other replication solutions available, but the
real question is whether they are cluster aware.

Besides what David is suggesting, I would like to add: talk to your storage
vendor, they may have replication methods or even "canned" solutions, such
as multi-site cluster solutions.
