Access Denied Error When You Connect to a DFS SharePSS ID Number: 246888

Article Last Modified on 10/10/2002


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:


Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server
Microsoft Windows 2000 Datacenter Server

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This article was previously published under Q246888
SYMPTOMS
When you gain access to a Distributed File System (DFS) link through the local file system, you may receive the following error message:
DRIVE:FOLDER\DFSLINKFOLDER is not accessible. Access is denied.
CAUSE
This issue can occur because Windows 2000 uses local file system placeholders below the shared DFS root folder to repesent DFS links. You cannot open the placeholders by using the local file system, you can only open them by using the DFS sharepoint.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue gain access to the shared resources by browsing to the server's share rather than through the local file system.
STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

"Access Denied" Error Message When You Attempt to Set Dfs Replication PolicyPSS ID Number: 261015

Article Last Modified on 10/11/2002


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:


Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This article was previously published under Q261015
SYMPTOMS
When you try to set a replication policy for the domain Distributed file system (Dfs) link, the policy may not be set and the following error message may be displayed:
The following error occurred while creating the staging path \\servername\drive$\Frs-Staging for subscriber object:
Access Denied.
CAUSE
This behavior occurs because the Administrator account does not have write permissions on the drive where the hidden folder (Frs-Staging) needs to be created. This hidden folder only needs to be created on the Dfs link that is set as the master or primary.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, assign the domain Administrator account at least write permissions on the root of the drive where the Frs-Staging folder is created. The error message lists the drive letter and the server where you need to create the folder.
STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Windows 2000.
