NTFRS is a multi-threaded, multi-master replication service that replaces the Windows NT LMREPL service. Windows 2000 Servers use NTFRS to replicate system policy and logon scripts from clients and to replicate the content between Windows 2000 servers hosting the same fault tolerant DFS roots or child node replica.
