    Hi There,

    We have a domain dfs share that for some sites seems to go to the incorrect
    server when used in certain sites... So we have \\domain-name\patch on file
    servers in diffrent sites (one server per site), in my site if I go to the
    share I get the correct file server for my site, however in one of our other
    sites if I go to a PC there and connect to the share i'm connected to a file
    server in a diffrent site. Any ideas?

    Hi Marcin,

    That document was helpful however I've checked all the suggested reasons and
    none are valid.

    I did come across two other articles... We didn’t have failback enabled so I
    enabled that and still no joy, I then came across this article:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;898900
    Most of our clients are XP SP2 so thought this could be the issue but i've
    tried this and still have the same problem.

    I then came across this article:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/944505/en-us
    I'm wondering if this is the issue we are seeing. I've asked the
    administrators at the remote site to test this hot fix on a non-production
    workstation and let me know.
