Access Based Enumeration on DFS

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by Mirco Wilhelm, Feb 26, 2008.

  1. Hi,

    my client currently operates a ton of NetApp vFilers which shares are
    mounted on the local desktops.

    I am currently planning a DFS implementation to reduced the mounted network
    drives on the desktop and easy a nessessary reorganization of the
    fileservices.

    Is it possible to apply the Access Based Enumeration on the DFS instead of
    the Fileservers, since I can't install anything on the vFilers?

    If yes, how and what version of Windows Server do I need?

    thx
    mirco

    Not sure if you are aware of this, but the NetApp filers natively support ABE
    No need to use a fileserver for this. I suppose it does'n matter if you
    access the filer directly or via DFS.

    Check out page 17 of this document:
