Hi Folks

I need to find a way of accessing the following file = fRSMemberReference in ADSIEdit.

Anyone know of a way of locating the file and of a way of editing it.

Many Thanks

They are located in a few places. It matters if this is for SYSVOl or a DFS replica.
If you use adsiedit DO NOT delete anything unless you are sure it is OK.
In ADSIEDIT, connect to the Domain Naming Context. There is an FrsMemberReference for each domain controller and for each server that participates in DFS.
Drill down to the server in question. Domain Controllers will be in the Domain Controlers OU. So for example, you will go to DC=Domain;DC=com > OU=Domain Controllers > CN=DomainControllerName > CN=NTFRS Subscriptions.
Right click on that entry and select properties. FrsMemberRefernce is an attibute listed in that properties box.
If it is for DFS, let me know. It is a little more complicated.
If you just want to view the information you can use AD Users and Computers. Open that up and on the View menu select Advanced. Refresh and drill down to System > File replication Service and select what you want to view from there.
