DFS Referral

    Hey All,

    I'm trying to implement DFS using an SBS 2003 Prem server (we all know its
    just Win2K Std machine as far as AD/DFS etc is concerned). This machine is
    obviously the DFS Root.

    I'm then replicating certain folders to a share on a WinXP SP2 machine
    across a VPN WAN link. I'm using Veritas Replication Exec due to some nice
    features it has to offer. So far the replication has been perfect.

    Now, the DFS Root and Targets are done.

    I've created a second Site in Sites & Services, assigned the the second
    sites Subnet to the site.

    However. This may be because I'm not using an actual server for my root
    target, I can't seem to get the WinXP target to be the active referral. Even
    if I connect to the DFS namespace on that machine!

    Is this by design or am I missing something?

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.
