dfs shares hang in terminal services session this worked for me

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by angela belcastro, Apr 5, 2010.

  1. User terminal services sessions would hang if they accessed a dfs share more than once. I found a fix online at techsupportforum and it worked like a charm.

    Group policy, User Config. Admin. Windows Explorer, Turn on Classic Shell

    Have the user log off and back on - voila!

    FS: 2003 Standard, SP2 (x2 - dfs home folder and profile)

    Hi - We have a problem when a user accesses the network DFS share. The user
    can access the top level folders, but as soon as they start to navigate to
    the next level, explorer starts to hang/slow down

    Our DFS structure currently has 640 folders. User is using XP with all the
    current service packs

    Any help or suggestions would be gratefully received

    Hi Isaac

    The user has "Modify" permission on the folders that she wishes to get to.
    The can get into the folders, but it can take up to 20 minutes to display the
    contents of the folder

    If she knows what folder she needs to look at, she can create a desktop
    shortcut to the folder, and that works fine. Obviously this is not a very
    good solution for the user, who could end up with hundreds of shortcuts on
    her desktop

    The DFS resides on a Windows 2003 Server platform

    Also, this does effect more than one user

    many thank

    Hello Markinessex

    How are users accessing the shared folders, through a local of remote
    server? Do you have domain based dfs namespace with ft where users can
    access file locally

    The user is mapping a local drive i.e. z: to the dfs. For example, her Z:
    drive would be mapped to \\worklink\yourdata

    The dfs namespace is doman based. The actual servers are located on the
    same network at the same location as the user
