What happens when connection to root server site is lost

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by Joseph DeAlmieda, Jul 6, 2004.

  1. We have 14 sites in a hub and spoke frs. Each site has an AD domain
    controller locally with Global catalog check box selected. When the site
    loses their network connection the client machines cannot resolve DFS paths.
    Since we has used DFS paths in the profile for home directories the users
    cannot login.



    1) Should DFS work even though the server with the DFS root is not available
    due to network interruption?

    2) Where is the DFS names resolved? At the DFS root server, or AD, or Global
    Catalog?



    I need some understanding to figure out how to troubleshoot and resolve the
    issues.



    Thanks,

    Joe

  2. Set up additional root targets on each domain controller for your
    domain-based Dfs root:

    \\domain.com\dfsroot is hosted on \\server1\dfsroot, \\server2\dfsroot etc
