    In a Domain based DFS implementation, what are the advantages\drawbacks of
    using the Netbios name v.s. using the DNS fully qualified name
    e.g \\NetbiosDomainName\RootName v.s \\DNSDomainName\RootName

  2. In a Domain based DFS implementation, what are the advantages\drawbacks of
    NetBIOS name system is flat. In your case it means, that you can face
    future problems with NetBIOS name resolution (if you have no WINS server
    in your network, you will unable find you DFS root in other segments of
    network).

    Both parts of the above statement are correct. NetBIOS is flat AND
    you will likely need WINS Server for multiple subnets but they are not
    directly related to each other; just two different characteristics of
    NetBIOS
    names and resolution.
