  2. HOW TO: Force Deletion of DFS Configuration Information



    A customer reported that an extra step is required in addition to what's in
    this KB article. His procedure is below (he added step 2c):

    1. Stop the DFS service by typing net stop dfs at a command prompt.

    2. Start Registry Editor and delete the following registry keys:

    a. Delete the Volumes folder and any subfolders under

    b. Delete all subfolders under

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DfsDriver\LocalVolumes, leaving
    LocalVolumes intact.

    c. Delete the key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfs\Roots\Domain\xxx, where xxx
    represents the faulty namespace

    3. From the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in, click Advanced
    Features on the View menu. Open the DFS-Configuration container under the
    System folder. Delete the DFS root in the right pane.

    4. Restart the DFS service you stopped in step 1; net start dfs
