DFS Dependencies

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by Joseph DeAlmieda, Jul 7, 2004.

  1. A DFS Technical Reference document states that:

    Clients must access DFS root servers by using the SMB protocol.

    If the DFS root server is temporarly unavaialable due to network outage does
    that mean that DFS resolution cannot take place even if the Local Domain
    controler with global catalog is available?

  3. A DFS root server must be available. If your client has cached a particular
    DFS link, you can traverse that link without talking to a root server. The
    cache will eventually expire, however.
