    NameSpace based on AD is limited to 5000 folders but i have 18.000
    directories in my namespace.

    The DFS diag told me that evrything seems to be ok.

    what do you think about this situation ?

    I think this limit is for the folders in the DFS structure. It does not include
    folders which are below the destination of the links. e.g if I have a link
    \domain\dfsroot\Home pointing to \\server\home$ then this is one folder not one
    for each user.
