I have a single domain with 2000, 2003 R2, and 2008 servers. The 2008 server\nhas been given all FSMO roles. I have 3 offices, with 2 DCs in the main\noffice (2008, 2000). The remote offices both have a 2003 R2 DC. DFS was\nworking great until I brought the 2008 online.\n\nSince I brought the first 2008 server online, I have been having problems\nwith my DFS Namespaces. When I run dfsutil /pktinfo, I get a list containing\nthe domain name and the namespace, as would be expected. However, also in\nthis list I have been seeing entries with the server name followed by one of\nthe namespaces. It looks something like this:\n\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nC:\>dfsutil /pktinfo\n-\-mup.sys-\-\nxx entries...\n\nEntry: \domain.com\support\nShortEntry: \domain.com\support\nExpires in 0 seconds\nUseCount: 0 Type:0x81 ( REFERRAL_SVC DFS )\n0:[\Server1\Support] State:0x110 ( ACTIVE )\n1:[\Server2\Support] State:0x100 ( )\n2:[\Server3\Support] State:0x100 ( )\n\nEntry: \Server1\support\nShortEntry: \Server1\support\nExpires in 0 seconds\nUseCount: 0 Type:0x81 ( REFERRAL_SVC DFS )\n0:[\Server1\Support] State:0x100 ( )\n1:[\Server2\Support] State:0x110 ( ACTIVE )\n2:[\Server3\Support] State:0x100 ( )\n\nDone processing this command.\n\nC:\>\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n\nSo essentially what happens on a client is:\n1. You go to a drive that is mapped to \\domain.com\support\n2. The client looks at its list of referrals and decides that\n\\domain.com\support = \\Server1\Support - all good so far.\n3. The client then decides that \\Server1\Support = \\Server2\Support,\nwhich is in a remote office\n4. The user at the desktop complains that the drive is really slow.\n\nI have also confirmed this behavior using this command on the server:\n\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nC:\>dfsutil diag viewdfspath \\Server3\support\n\nThe DFS Path <\\Server3\support> resolves to -> <\\Server1\Support>\n\nDone processing this command.\n\nC:\>\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n\nTo answer one question before it comes up, I have never created a\nstand-alone dfs path. All dfs paths have been domain paths. As far as I\nunderstand it, there should NEVER be a server listed directly as an entry in\nthe PKT.\n\nI am at a complete loss over what is causing this. Can someone please help\nme!\n\nThanks!
