    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

    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?

    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.
