robocopy DFS Drive to another server

Occasional Visitor

I am having problem p2v a physical dfs server E drive. 

 

So I wonder if I can robocopy the E drive (DFS Shares) to the new server

 

The problem is I need to keep the new server the same name as the old.

 

Can I do this?

 

1. Temporily rename the new destination server to server1

 

2. have them both on the domain

 

3. robocopy the E drive from source to destination

 

4. shutdown the old server

 

5. rename the new server to the old server

 

will this work?

@dragonMir This server doing DFS Replication or just a namespace server?
