    I'm having some problems with DFS. I never used/configured DFS and
    everything was working fine until recently. However, since I installed
    service pack 1 on a windows 2003 server, the performance of that file server
    has decreased by about 80%. After searching for the problem I think that it
    might be related to the changes made to DSF in SP1. Since I updated to SP1,
    every time some heavy file modifications are made, fssv.exe uses 50-60% CPU
    doing some unknown tasks.

    I wanted to know if someone has an idea if there will be a fix for this and
    if I could disable the DFS service until this is fixed.

    Thanks for your help

  2. Do you mean dfssvc.exe?

    I can't really find much info on fssv.exe.

    I suggest you log a call with MS PSS about this. I believe any calls in
    relation to a SP are free.

    This group would also benefit from a follow up from you...
