Dfsutil root export bug?

    Windows 2008 Server x64 running standalone DFS namespace.

    When running a export of my DFS namespace it appears to export fine. But
    when I try to import doing dfsutil root import I get the following errors.
    It appears that the export or the import does not account for spaces in the
    DFS folder names. That is what seems to be to me but wanted to see if
    others had troubles like this and if it was resolved or worked around.

    Error in import file:

    Error Code = 0xc00ce513
    Source = Line : 64; Position: 61

    Error String: <Target State="Online">\\servername\share\folder>

    Error description: Whitespace is not allowed at this location.

  2. Hello,

    Could you give me more details of your scenario? Is the space at the DFS
    Folder only, at the DFS target folder, or both?

    There are spaces both in the DFS folder and the Target. The error
    message(example in first posting) specifically appears to be complaining
    about the Target having the space. Below is the commands I am using.
    Exporting to text or xml does not appear to make a diff. Thanks.

    dfsutil root export \\server\shared e:\scripts\exportdfs\Sharedexport.xml

    dfsutil root import merge e:\scripts\exportdfs\sharedexport.xml
