HI,

I have two Forests (old one and new one).
Actually I migrate the workstations from the old Forest into a Domain from the new forest.

In the old forest I have two member Server with a Domain based DFS...this DFS I have migrate also.

Does anyone have an idea how I can do that (the Users should reach the DFS with the old and the new Name)?

TIA,
Michael

Usualy the DFS Client, once the workstation has joined the new forest/domain, will automaticaly discover the new (migrated) dfs root.

See under "DFS Group Policy Settings" -

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Sets how often a DFS Client discovers DC’s
"Configures how often a DFS client attempts to discover domain controllers on the network. By default, a DFS client attempts to discover domain controllers every 15 minutes. This value is specified in minutes. If you disable this setting or do not configure it, the default value (15 minutes) is used."
