    DFS-R
    Windows 2003 R2
    Topoligi = 1 hub, 3 spoke
    1 domain-namespace on the hub.(d:\dfsroot\â€namepaceâ€)

    The problem:
    When I map the namespace: \\domain.xxx\\namespace to a drive Z
    I can see all the folders in the namespace, BUT I can not access any folder.
    If I then map to the HUB shared namespace folder (d:\dfsroot\â€namepaceâ€)
    (Y:\), and click a folder I have access.
    Now, if I go back to the Z-drive, I now have access to the folder I didn’t
    have access to before.


    If I restarted and tried to do the opposed:
    Mappind the Z-drive to the HUB shared namespace folder
    (d:\dfsroot\â€namepaceâ€), then I can see all the folders in the namespace, BUT
    I can not access any folder.
    If I then map to the domain-namespace \\domain.xxx\\namespace to drive Y:\
    and click a folder, I have access.
    Now, if I go back to the Z-drive, I now have access to the folder I didn’t
    have access to before.

    So no matter have I map to the namespace via domain \\domain.xxx\\namespace
    or the namespace shared on the hub server (d:\dfsroot\â€namepaceâ€), the access
    denied message always shows itself on the first attempt to connect.

    From my point of view, its not about share or ntfs rights, because I can get
    access ones it “kicked†with the second and opposed attempt.

    Any ideas ????
