Windows 2000 DFS Root

By chaom ·
Is it possible to set up multiple Dfs Roots on the same W2K server? I couldn't find any solution on MSKB. Please advise. Thx.

Yes, a DFS root is basically just a share that you are declaring to be a DFS root and you can have more than one per server.

I can setup multiple Dfs links but only one Dfs root is allowed per server. I couldn't find a way around. I did find an MSKB article (http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/en/server/help/sag_DFprocsNewRoot.htm) about Dfs root but didn't help. Couldyou show me how to get around this. thanks a bunch.

Take a look at the DFS white paper. There are different setup scenarios that might help you out:

(please remove any spaces)

But as far as I remember, there can be only 1 DFS Root on a single server, but multiple DFS volumes on Win2K servers.

hope this helps

No, only one DFS root can you set up per server.The number of DFS root per domain is unlimited.
