I have an issue with DFS.  One of my servers was decommisioned and shutdown.  This is a remote site.  Now, one of my network people created a new file server and one of the directories is not accessible.  When I look at the properties of this directory under DFS, the Referral list shows the path to the server that was shutdown.

When I do a Check Stauts, it tells me it is unreachable.  So, Do Ineed to power on this Server and copy this folder that appears not to have been copied to the new file server?  I'm not worked enough with DFS to understand the issue.  

My network guy is out on an emergency and unavailable to ansers questions.  I am making an assumption the directory was not copied to the new server and the DFS is not linked correctly?  Any help from someone ASAP would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.
